Potential food resources and nestling food in the Great Reed Warbler (AcrocephMus arundinaceus arundinaceus) and Eastern Great Reed Warbler ( A crocephalus arundinaceus orientalis)

Great Reed-Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus) Science Article 2 abstract The main ecological difference between the Great Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus arundinaceus) and Eastern Great Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus acrocephalus orientalis) lies in the density of breeding population, which in the Eastern subspecies studied in Japan is on average 10 times higher than that of European populations of […]

Antiparasite behaviour in response to experimental brood parasitism in the great reed warbler: a comparison of single and multiple parasitism

Great Reed-Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus) Science Article 1 abstract Rejection of parasitic eggs is one of the most important adaptations of avian hosts against brood parasites. Multiple brood parasitism is relatively rare in hosts of the common cuckoo (Cuculus canorus), but naturally occurs when the rate of parasitism is high. We experimentally parasitised great reed warbler […]

Reed die-back, water level management and the decline of the Great Reed Warbler Acrocephalus arundinaceus in The Netherlands.

Great Reed-Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus) Science Article 4 abstract Several species of migratory marsh birds have declined in Central and Western Europe. An important question is whether this decline is primarily caused by loss of wetlands on the wintering grounds in Africa or by a decline in habitat quality in the breeding areas. Significant losses of […]
