The grasslands of Blackbuck National Park, Gujarat provide a major breeding ground for the Lesser Florican (Sypheotides indica). The study to identify potential nesting area of Lesser Florican and disturbance factors for the conservation and management of the species was conducted over 150 days from June to October 2001. Thirty-eight male and 16 female floricans were sighted and a total of five nests were recorded during the study with an average clutch size of 4-5 eggs. Local people of the…

FACTORS GOVERNING AVIAN BREEDING IN ACACIA SAVANNA, PIETERMARITZBURG, PART 3: BREEDING SUCCESS, RECRUITMENT AND CLUTCH SIZE

Breeding success was higher in the dry 1979 season but fewer breeding attempts were made and the overall recruitment was thus lower and breeding success was at its lowest.

In most species examined testis activity was at its lowest between April and June and highest from September to January, while Colius striatus showed a less seasonal pattern of testes activity while Nectarinia talatala showed very early testis Activity and had fully active testes in May.

Birds of the Indian Subcontinent

The Indian subcontinent is species-rich partly because of its wide altitudinal range extending from sea level up to the summit of the Himalayas, the world’s highest mountains, and its geographical position in a region of overlap between three biogeographic provinces – the Indo-malayan (South and South-East Asia), Palearctic (Europe and Northern Asia), and Afro-tropical (Africa) realms.

Mating system and reproductive success of a small population of polygamous Snowy Plovers

It is suggested that the female’s serial polyandry may be a facultative response to a skewed sex ratio and sexual differences in survival rates are nearly sufficient to account for the difference in sex ratio.

THE 4-EGG CLUTCH LIMIT IN THE CHARADRII: AN EXPERIMENT WITH AMERICAN AVOCETS

The approach was to augment and deplete clutches during laying to discover if survival was reduced for augmented clutches in comparison to control (natural) and experimentally depleted clutches.
