      Avian brood parasites target particular bird species to raise their offspring, sometimes at great cost to the foster family. Feeney et al. (p. [][1]; see the Perspective by [Spottiswoode][2]) analyzed the global distribution of brood parasitism and found a correlation with the occurrence of cooperative breeders across multiple taxa. For example, Australian fairy wrens breed both singly. Previous studies of avian mating systems considered the role of paternal care and habitat type on the evolution of polygyny. We extended those studies and included in our analyses the role of.

    The Biology of the Avian Respiratory System Evolution, Development, Structure and Function The central focus of this book is the avian respiratory system. The authors explain why the respiratory system of modern birds is built the way it is and works the way that it does. Birds have been and continue to attract particular interest [ ]. Much research has focused on these cooperatively breeding groups (reviewed in Komdeur et al. [5]), although they comprise only a small percentage of avian and mammalian systems. Conversely, many.

"David Ligon's book is a review of current knowledge about the factors causing variation in breeding systems in birds, strongly flavoured with historical information about the development of currently influential ideas. The book is also a review of current theories of sexual selection as they apply to birds Cited by: The Evolution Of Avian Breeding Systems by Ligon, J.

David Ever since Darwin, birds have provided much of the stimulus for the study of evolution and natural selection. The Evolution of Avian Breeding Systems deals with three of the most conspicuous and fascinating aspects of the reproductive biology of birds: sexual selection, parental care, and mating systems.

Both the mating behaviour and the social behaviour of species were classified for males and females, according to (1) the frequency of mated individuals in a species having several mates in a breeding season compared to those having one mate (the mating. THE EVOLUTION OF AVIAN BREEDING SYSTEMS.

Previous studies of avian mating systems considered the role of paternal care and habitat type on the evolution of polygyny. Leisler et al. () extended those studies and also included analyses. The evolution of cooperation among animals has posed a major problem for evolutionary biologists, and despite decades of research into avian cooperative breeding systems, many questions about the evolution of their societies remain unresolved.

A review of the kin structure of avian societies shows that a large majority live in kin-based groups. Animal breeding systems John D. Reynolds The study of breeding systems explores relationships between mating behaviour and parental care. Recent findings have shown that in many birds, fishes, anurans, and insects, females play a more active role than previously thought, by engaging in mate choice, mating with more than one male, and selecting genetic partners separately from social.

The science underpinning avian immunology is crucial to understanding basic immunological principles and the exceptional features of the avian immune system, as different strategies birds have adopted can provide important evolutionary insights.

This book provides the most complete picture of the avian immune system so far. The world-wide importance of poultry protein for. monogamy in general and avian monogamy in particular. The progress made with non-monogamous mating systems can be used to steer investigations of monogamy, but fresh approaches are also in use.

The Biology of the Avian Respiratory System: Evolution, Development, Structure and Function. by John N. Maina April The central focus of this book is the avian respiratory system. The authors explain why the respiratory system of modern birds is built the way it is and works the way that it does.

The more variable the resources on which a bird depends, the stronger will be the selection pressure favoring the evolution of migration. Another important consideration is the predictability with which the resources fluctuate.

There is no option for an insectivorous bird such as the blackpoll warbler to spend the winter in its breeding range. : Avian Brood Parasitism: Behaviour, Ecology, Evolution and Coevolution (Fascinating Life Sciences) (): Soler, Manuel: BooksReviews: 1.The book contains a detailed description of the avian innate immune system, encompassing the mucosal, enteric, respiratory and reproductive systems.

The diseases and disorders it covers include immunodepressive diseases and immune evasion, autoimmune diseases, and tumors of the immune system.Organized conceptually, this book pays special attention to ways in which cooperative breeders have proved fertile subjects for testing modern approaches to classic evolutionary problems, including those of sexual selection, sex-ratio manipulation, life-history evolution, Price: $
