The seasonal development of photoperiodic responsiveness in an equatorial migrant, the garden warblerSylvia borin

Abstract

Garden warblers (Sylvia borin) are migrating European passerines that spend the winter in tropical Africa. To investigate how photoperiod controls the annual cycles of reproduction, molt and migration, garden warblers were exposed to photoperiodic changes simulating those experienced by conspecifics with an equatorial wintering area.
