Experimental evidence that keeping eggs dry is a mechanism for the antimicrobial effects of avian incubation
TLDR
It is shown that water increases microbial growth on eggshells and that incubation nullifies these effects, suggesting that removal of water from egg surfaces is one proximate mechanism for the antimicrobial effects of incubation. Expand
Avian Incubation Inhibits Growth and Diversification of Bacterial Assemblages on Eggs
TLDR
Comparing bacterial assemblages on naturally incubated and experimentally unincubated eggs at laying and late incubation using a universal 16S rRNA microarray containing probes for over 8000 bacterial taxa concluded that incubation inhibits all of the relatively few bacteria that grow on eggshells, and does not appear to promote growth of any bacteria.

The causes of the mortality of eggs and nestlings ofPasser sp.
TLDR
The role of microorganisms, heavy metals, pesticides and food shortage were investigated as possible causes of embryo and nestling deaths and the level of sublethal doses of heavy metals and pesticides are much lower that reported in the literature. Expand
The effects of exposure and microbes on hatchability of eggs in open‐cup and cavity nests
TLDR
The data suggest that open-cup nesters may face constraints on reproduction different from those that cavity nesters face, and therefore may make choices regarding incubation that reflect these challenges. Expand

TLDR
Bacterial diversity was highest in neutral soils and lower in acidic soils, with soils from the Peruvian Amazon the most acidic and least diverse in this study. Expand
Microbial infection affects egg viability and incubation behavior in a tropical passerine
TLDR
First evidence that microbes can infect unincubated eggs of a wild bird is provided, and that infection and ambient temperature act independently to reduce hatching success is provided. Expand

TLDR
Embryonic mortality was high at the start and end of incubation and Mortality of late stage embryos was related to percentage water loss and mass specific water vapour conductance of the shell, with extremes of the ranges causing the highest mortality. Expand
The egg: a compartmentalized, aseptically packaged food
Of the many contributions of the female to the overall breeding success of her species, two are of particular relevance in the context of this chapter. First, she endows an egg with a large, denseExpand
EFFECTS OF VARIABLE HUMIDITY ON EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT AND HATCHING SUCCESS OF MOURNING DOVES
ABSmAcr.-Newly laid Mourning Dove (Zenaida macroura) eggs were held at a constant temperature of 37.5?C at one of three relative humidities: 0-5% ("arid"); 35-45% ("intermediate"); and 95-100%Expand
