Relationship of weight loss to ambient humidity of birds eggs during incubation

Abstract

Eggs of birds nesting in wet and dry habitats, have been artificially incubated at controlled humidity white weight loss of the eggs and shell water vapour conductance have been determined. Eggs of species from wet habitats loose weight at a higher rate than those from drier habitats at a given relative humidity. It is suggested that the conductance of the… (More)
