  1. 1. Integrative taxonomy of birds : Studies into the nature, origin and delimitation of species

    Författare :George Sangster; Per G. P. Ericson; Martin Päckert; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aves; biogeography; integrative taxonomy; pluralism; ring species; speciation; species criteria; species limits; taxon chain; Systematic Zoology; zoologisk systematik och evolutionsforskning;

    Sammanfattning : Species are the basic currency in biodiversity studies but what constitutes a species has long been controversial. A major breakthough was the insight that most systematists agree that species are segments of population lineages, and that multiple lines of evidence should be employed and integrated, a procedure called integrative taxonomy.

  2. 2. Maternal programming: costs, benefits and constraints of maternal hormone transfer

    Författare :Michael Tobler; MEMEG; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; aves; immune function; behavior; Maternal effects; hormones;

    Sammanfattning : Avian mothers convey significant quantities of androgens (i.e. ?male? steroids) to their eggs, which are known to positively influence embryonic development, post-natal growth and competitive behaviour of the offspring. However, there is large inter-female variation in the amount of androgens transferred to the eggs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Molecular systematics of the antbird-ovenbird complex (Aves: Furnariida)

    Författare :Martin Irestedt; Per G. P. Ericson; Richard O. Prum; Stockholms universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns the phylogenetic relationships among suboscine birds with special emphasis on the antbird-ovenbird complex (Aves: Furnariida). The principal aim is to produce a framework for future systematic and comparative studies of suboscines by generating robust phylogenetic hypotheses from DNA-sequence data. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Responses to reduced industrial metal emissions : An ecotoxicological study on Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca, Aves)

    Sammanfattning : Metals have been used by humans for thousands of years, and this has resulted in increased concentrations in the biosphere. The environment around point-sources, such as mines and smelters, are of particular concern, as metals may accumulate to high concentrations, and potentially reach levels toxic to the local flora and fauna.
