2. Cooperative Breeding in the Southern Anteater-Chat : Sexual Disparity, Survival and Dispersal
Sammanfattning : Group-living sets the scene for complex social behaviours such as cooperative breeding, and exploring the factors that shape group-living is crucial in understanding these behaviours. This thesis explores the ecology of a population of the facultative cooperative breeding southern anteater-chat (Myrmecocichla formicivora), a group-living bird species endemic to southern Africa.

3. Nesting and migration in the introduced Canada goose in Sweden
Sammanfattning : The aim of the thesis was to document patterns in breeding and migration in Swedish Canada geese Branta canadensis, to explain these against the genetic and historical background of the population, and to test predictions of hypotheses pertaining to parental investment.The Canada goose population in Sweden was founded by the introduction of a few individuals in the 1930's.

4. Interaction between dispersal and behavioural syndromes - empirical approach in a fragmented population of passerine birds
Sammanfattning : Dispersal is a key life history trait for ecological and evolutionary processes in wild populations. The latest research has particularly focused on the correlation between behavioural traits and dispersal, in order to emphasize the existence of behavioural syndromes of dispersal, and on the estimation of the genetic basis of the dispersal behaviour.

5. Population Genetic Analyses of Natal Dispersal and Substructure in Three Bird Species
Sammanfattning : Genetic variation within and among populations is a result of past and ongoing processes. Among the most important of such processes are dispersal, habitat fragmentation and selection. This thesis use neutral genetic variation as a tool to investigate these processes in three bird species. LÄS MER
