Osmoregulation and adaptive radiation in the ovenbirdgenusCinclodes(Passeriformes: Furnariidae)

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 7 abstract The genus Cinclodes is unique among passerines because it includes two species thatcan be considered marine/coastal and also includes several species that inhabit freshwaterstreams or that shift habitats between terrestrial/fresh water and marine habitats. The Cinclodes clade satisfies two criteria of an adaptive radiation: it is monophyletic and […]

Evolution of the ovenbird-woodcreeper assemblage (Aves: Furnariidae), major shifts in nest architecture and adaptive radiation

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 10 abstract The Neotropical ovenbirds (Furnariidae) form an extraordinary morphologically andecologically diverse passerine radiation, which includes many examples of species thatare superficially similar to other passerine birds as a resulting from their adaptations tosimilar lifestyles. The ovenbirds further exhibits a truly remarkable variation in nesttypes, arguably approaching that found in […]

HABITAT FRAGMENTATION AND PAIRING SUCCESS IN THE OVENBIRD (SEIURUS AUROCAPILLUS)

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 2 abstract In 1990 and 1991, we determined the proportion of Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus)territorial males that were paired in a 25-ha plot in an extensive forest (>350 km 2) inQu6bec, and compared it to pairing success in populations breeding in nearby forest fragments (4.5-53.0h a) in Quebec and Ontario.

FOREST PRODUCTIVITY PREDICTS INVERTEBRATE BIOMASS ANDOVENBIRD (SEIURUS AUROCAPILLUS) REPRODUCTION INAPPALACHIAN LANDSCAPES

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 1 abstract Forest-floor detrital food webs are sustained by annual inputs of leaf fall.However, it is unknown whether this bottom-up effect extends to vertebrates feeding onthe detrital food web. We hypothesized that reproductive success of Ovenbirds (Seiurusaurocapillus L.) is a function of macroinvertebrate biomass within the detrital food web,and that […]

Identifying Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus) habitat in a suburbanizing landscape: The use of GIS and regional landscape approaches in conservation

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 3 abstract To conduct a repeatable process for detecting the presence or absence of the Ovenbird inpotential habitat patches within the seven county Triangle Region of North Carolina (Chatham,Franklin, Lee, Durham, Orange, Johnston and Wake).

MODELING POPULATION GROWTH OF THE OVENBIRD (SEIURUSAUROCAPILLA) IN THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 6 abstract Studies of source-sink dynamics are oft en prompted by concerns aboutnegative population trends. Estimates of population trajectories are usually based onassumptions about survival rates and empirical measures of fecundity. Most modelsignore the infl uence of the rates of renesting and multiple brooding. Andrei L. Podolsky et al, The […]

DISPLAY BEHAVIOR OF OVENBIRDS (SEIURUS AUROCAPILLUS) I. NON-SONG VOCALIZATIONS

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 4 abstract Although detailed investigations of single displays have furnished insights into their proximate causation and adaptive roles in regulating social behavior (Smith 1977, Sebeok 1977), they contribute relatively little to our understanding of the evolution of animal communication at a somewhat higher level.
