Experimental (tamoxifen-induced) manipulation of female reproduction in zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata).

Abstract

Experimental manipulation of reproductive phenotype is a potentially powerful approach for understanding the fitness relationships of traits such as egg size, egg composition, and egg number. In this study, I investigated the effect of the antiestrogen tamoxifen on multiple, estrogen-dependent reproductive traits in female zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata… (More)
