    ..Nevertheless, our results indicate that compensation and possibly the timing of moult may be used as mechanisms to reduce seasonal variation in energy expenditure...

    Departement de Biologie, Universite du Quebec a Rimouski, Rimouski, Quebec G5L 3A1, Canada
    Ecology 88:2936-45. 2007
    ..This finding contrasts with the classical view that little or no benefit is associated with a flightless condition. We suggest that such energy savings may have favored the evolution of temporary flightlessness in diving birds...

    David Pelletier
    Departement de Biologie, Universite du Quebec a Rimouski, Rimouski, Quebec, Canada G5L 3A1
    Biol Lett 3:357-9. 2007
    ..We believe that the technique described here will open new avenues of investigation in the adaptive value of flight...

    David Pelletier
    Departement de Biologie, Universite du Quebec a Rimouski, Rimouski Québec, Canada G5L 3A1
    Proc Biol Sci 275:2117-24. 2008
    ..Nevertheless, we suggest that the (fitness) benefits of keeping flight ability in this species exceed the costs by allowing a higher survival in relation to predation and environmental harshness...

    ..Diet diversity also scaled negatively with body mass. Our results suggest the existence of a minimum for the energy value of avian diets...
