    Physiological measurements of both stress and sex hormones are often used to estimate the consequences of natural or human-induced change in ecological studies of various animals. Different methods of hormone measurement ...
  • Environmental influences on Adelie penguin breeding schedules, endocrinology, and chick survival

    Ninnes, Calum Edward; Waas, Joseph R.; Ling, Nicholas; Nakagawa, Shinichi; Banks, Jonathan C.; Bell, Dudley G.; Bright, A.; Carey, P.G.; Chandler, J.; Hudson, Q.J.; Ingram, J.R.; Lyall, K.; Morgan, Dai K.J.; Stevens, Mark I.; Wallace, J.; Möstl, E. (Elsevier, 2011)

  • ‘O sibling, where art thou?’ – a review of avian sibling recognition with respect to the mammalian literature

    Nakagawa, Shinichi; Waas, Joseph R. (Cambridge University Press, 2004)
    Avian literature on sibling recognition is rare compared to that developed by mammalian researchers. We compare avian and mammalian research on sibling recognition to identify why avian work is rare, how approaches differ ...
