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 […]

Ovenbird response to seismic lines

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 9 abstract Rapid development of energy reserves in the boreal forest of western Canada hasraised concerns about the potential impacts of forest fragmentation caused by seismic lines. Seismic lines are narrow linear corridors cut by the energy sector to access remote areas. Traditionally, seismic lines were cut using a bulldozer […]

Foraging Ovenbird Follows Armadillo

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 5 abstract Report an observation of a foraging Ovenbird (Seiurus uurocapiZZus) following a ninebandedarmadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus), near Gainesville, Florida. Close attendance only while the armadillo was moving and disturbing leaf litter suggests the Ovenbird was taking advantage of increased prey availability caused by the armadillo’s flushing of insects Douglas J. […]

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. MARC-ANDRE […]

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 […]
