Abstract We investigated the yearlong territorial behavior of White-bellied Antbirds (Myrmeciza longipes) in Panama by conducting 17 experimental removals during the nonbreeding season on both sexes. We also monitored the territorial behavior and occupancy of 48 males and 34 females throughout the nonbreeding and breeding seasons. We tested the importance of territory switching, mate advertisement, foray behavior, and role of floaters. In seven of the removal experiments, both members of a pair… 
NONBREEDING TERRITORIAL BEHAVIOR OF TWO CONGENERIC ANTBIRDS, CHESTNUT-BACKED ANTBIRD (MYRMECIZA EXSUL) AND WHITE-BELLIED ANTBIRD (M. LONGIPES)
TLDR
Using radiotelemetry during the nonbreeding (dry) season to systematically compare the short-term movements, singing and territorial behavior of two antbirds that have a similar ecology but occupy different habitats, it is discussed whether these differences are explained.
TESTOSTERONE DOES NOT INCREASE IN RESPONSE TO CONSPECIFIC CHALLENGES IN THE WHITE-BELLIED ANTBIRD (MYRMECIZA LONGIPES), A RESIDENT TROPICAL PASSERINE
Abstract Resident tropical passerines that exhibit year-round territorial aggression do not fit well into the temperate-zone model, because testosterone does not increase substantially during the
The function of seasonal song in a tropical resident species, the Red-throated Ant-tanager (Habia fuscicauda)
TLDR
The results suggest that high song output during the breeding season may be more common in omnivorous species that experience increased seasonality and that it may be indicative of an extra-pair mating system.
TERRITORIALITY, PROSPECTING, AND DISPERSAL IN COOPERATIVELY BREEDING MICRONESIAN KINGFISHERS (TODIRAMPHUS CINNAMOMINUS REICHENBACHII)
Abstract We investigated territoriality, prospecting, and dispersal behavior in cooperatively breeding Pohnpei Micronesian Kingfishers (Todiramphus cinnamominus reichenbachii) throughout the annual
Demography of Slate‐throated Redstarts (Myioborus miniatus): a non‐migratory Neotropical warbler
TLDR
The study population was a demographic sink, most likely due to lower-than-expected adult survival, and the annual survival, reproductive output, dispersal, age of first breeding, and other demographic characteristics of a permanently territorial non-migratory tropical warbler are examined.
Responses of territorial and floater male Red‐winged Blackbirds to models of receptive females
TLDR
The results indicating that the presence of territorial males limits floater intrusions, copulation attempts, and successful copulations, suggests that the reproductive success of floater males is limited in part by the aggressive behavior of territorial Males.
Long-term mate and territory fidelity in neotropical buff-breasted wrens (Thryothorus leucotis)
TLDR
Overall, buff-breasted wrens showed high rates of mate and territory fidelity between years, with individuals significantly more faithful to their territories than to their partners.
Territorial dynamics of Mexican Ant‐thrushes Formicarius moniliger revealed by individual recognition of their songs
TLDR
This work uses canonical discriminant analysis (CDA) to identify individual Mexican Ant-thrushes using data extracted with a semi-automated procedure from song recordings, showing that considerably more information was provided by identifying individuals from their songs than by ringing and re-sighting colour-ringed individuals.
Territoriality of Six Thamnophilidae Species In A Cloud Forest In Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
Assessment of territories of six species of antbirds from August 2010 to May 2011 at Pedra Azul State Park in southeastern Brazil found empty spaces between territories and a high overlap rate among territories of different species, but no overlap within species.
High Apparent Annual Survival and Stable Territory Dynamics of Chestnut-Backed Antbird (Myrmeciza exsul) in a Large Costa Rican Rain Forest Preserve
TLDR
Chestnut-backed Antbirds are suggested to have relatively high adult annual survival, and have limited breeding dispersal, even in a large, forested study area.

Territory switching behavior in a sedentary tropical passerine, the dusky antbird (Cercomacra tyrannina)
TLDR
It is suggested that switching is favored when low annual reproductive success enhances selection for a long lifespan as the primary means to increase reproductive success.
A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE SOCIAL ORGANIZATION OF ANTWRENS ON BARRO COLORADO ISLAND, PANAMA
TLDR
It is suggested that adults of foliage gleaning species are the least sensitive to disturbance from the addition of conspecifics (young) foraging in close proximity, not only in antwrens, but in understory insectivores in general.
The "Underworld" in a Territorial Sparrow: Adaptive Strategy for Floaters
TLDR
A tropical population of Rufous-collared Sparrows, Zonotrichia capensis, with year-round territoriality and breeding, included about 50% nonterritorial floaters, which could evolve wherever membership will increase a floater's chances to breed and where the costs to the owner of having floaters in its territory are less than the costs of driving them out.

COMPARISON OF THE REPRODUCTIVE BIOLOGY OF TWO NEOTROPICAL WRENS IN AN UNPREDICTABLE ENVIRONMENT IN NORTHEASTERN COLOMBIA
TLDR
Observations suggest that the evolution of the reproductive strategies in Buff-breasted and Rufous-and-white wrens was mostly through the change of behavioral parameters rather than physiological reproductive parameters such as changes in clutch size, egg size, or number of broods.
Territory Quality and Dispersal Options in the Acorn Woodpecker, and a Challenge to the Habitat-Saturation Model of Cooperative Breeding
TLDR
It is suggested that competition for space may be the outcome of factors that promote philopatry, such as access to a critical resource and/or mutualistic benefits of living in a group and eventually breeding in the natal territory.
AVIAN REMOVAL EXPERIMENTS: DO THEY TEST FOR HABITAT SATURATION OR FEMALE AVAILABILITY?
TLDR
The results suggest the importance of considering female availability in ad- dition to habitat availability, in studies of habitat distributions and population dynamics of birds and other species, and suggest the existence of floaters in birds.

Populations and Local Extinctions of Birds on Barro Colorado Island, Panama
TLDR
A 1960—71 study of populations of color—banded ant—following antbirds of three species on a tropical—forested lowland reserve, Barro Colorado Island, showed that the small species remained stable at about 20 pairs/km2, but the medium and large species declined, with no clear reasons for declines.
