Shorebird incubation behaviour and its influence on the risk of nest predation
TLDR
The results suggest that more conspicuous incubation behaviour is indeed related to a higher risk of nest predation, and that this relationship may underlie patterns of nest survival within and among shorebird species.
Population Trends of Tundra-Nesting Birds at Cape Churchill, Manitoba, in Relation to Increasing Goose Populations
TLDR
The results indicate that most abundant breeding birds on the study area did not exhibit lower densities in later years despite increased effects of goose herbivory on vegetation, and habitat alteration may have to be widespread and severe to elicit population declines over a large area.
ANNUAL VARIATION IN THE BENEFITS OF A NESTING ASSOCIATION BETWEEN RED PHALAROPES (PHALAROPUS FULICARIUS) AND SABINE'S GULLS (XEMA SABINI)
TLDR
It is suggested that red Phalaropes select coastal areas near gulls, but that this association is beneficial to phalarope only in years when egg predation by arctic foxes is low.
