Structural conservation and variation in the mitochondrial control region of fringilline finches (Fringilla spp.) and the greenfinch (Carduelis chloris

Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) Science Article 2 abstract We sequenced the entire control region and portions of flanking genes (tRNAPhe, tRNAGiu, and ND6) in the common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), blue chaffinch (F. teydea), brambling (F. montifringilla), and greenfinch (Carduelis chloris). In these finches the control region is similar in length (1,223-1,237 bp) and has the same […]

Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs foraging patterns,nestling survival and territory distribution onlowland farmland

Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) Science Article 3 abstract Numbers of many bird species which breed on farmland, and are reliant oncropped land for feeding or nesting, declined between the 1960s and 1990s. Incontrast, Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs numbers increased on farmland over thesame period. This study investigates the influence of both cropped and noncroppedland on Chaffinches foraging […]

Some aspects of Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs biology, based on an analysis of individuals ringed during 1991 to 2003 in Norfolk, England

Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) Science Article 1 abstract From 1991 to 2003, 2,954 Chaffinches Fringilla coelebs were caught and ringed, year-round, at Hilborough, Norfolk, England. The age and sex composition of Chaffinches varied between winters, but no systematic pattern was apparent. The age and sex composition of Chaffinches caught during winter did not vary significantly from […]

Time in captivity, individual differences and foragingbehaviour in wild-caught chaffinches

Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) Science Article 4 abstract Wild-caught animals are often given a settling in period before experimental trials are initiated.We used wild-caught chaffinches (Fringilla coelebs) to investigate (a) the effect ofsettling in period duration on the likelihood that chaffinches foraged during experimental trialsand (b) whether settling in period duration influenced measures of foraging and […]
