Can microbes be contributing to the decline of the North Island Brown Kiwi (Apteryx mantelli)? : a thesis in partial fulfilment of the requirement for the degree of Master of Science in Zoology at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand
The Kiwi egg and the impact of microorganisms on North Island Brown Kiwi conservation, literature review, and project objectives are reviewed.
The complex acoustic repertoire of a highly social species, the Noisy Miner, Manorina melanocephala
The acoustic repertoire of the Noisy Miner, Manorina melanocephala, a cooperative species that lives in large colonies is examined, quantifying the rich vocal repertoire of this social species, and provides further implications for the link between cooperative breeding and large vocal repertoires.
One method does not suit all: variable settlement responses of three procellariid species to vocalisation playbacks
For Grey-faced Petrels and Fluttering Shearwaters, response to call playback increased with increasing densities of nearby breeding conspecifics, suggesting there may be a relationship between attraction and the size of nearby potential source populations.
Is geographical variation in the size of Australian shorebirds consistent with hypotheses on differential migration?
It is concluded that the interaction between ambient temperature, body-size and bill-length determines the geographical distribution of shorebirds wintering in Australia, the first study that disassociates overlapping predictions of competing hypotheses on differential migration.
Re-Examining Mortality Sources and Population Trends in a Declining Seabird: Using Bayesian Methods to Incorporate Existing Information and New Data
There is a 70% probability that the flesh-footed shearwater population on Lord Howe continued to decline during 2003–2009, and a number of possible reasons for this are suggested.
Migratory shorebird ecology in the Hunter estuary, sourth-eastern Australia
Ancient DNA Resolves Identity and Phylogeny of New Zealand's Extinct and Living Quail (Coturnix sp.)
DNA analysis of selected mitochondrial regions was carried out to determine phylogenetic relationships and species status of Coturnix sp.
Nesting sites and nesting success of reintroduced red‐crowned parakeets (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae) on Tiritiri Matangi Island, New Zealand
The results indicate that red‐crowned parakeets are good candidates for reintroductions to areas lacking introduced predators, even during the early stages of revegetation.
Patterns of ecological segregation among forest and woodland birds in south-eastern Australia
Most patterns in birds of eucalypt forests and woodlands in south-eastern Australia resemble those reported overseas, with habitat and range featuring as major segregating mechanisms.
