  1. Møller A, Fincher C, Thornhill R. Why men have shorter lives than women: effects of resource availability, infectious disease, and senescence. Am J Hum Biol. 2009;21:357-64 pubmed publisher
    ..In contrast, there was only a marginal effect of average household income. Thus, there was evidence of increased competition for resources contributing to increased sex differences in longevity within a single nation. ..
  2. Møller A, Mousseau T. Mutation and sexual selection: a test using barn swallows from Chernobyl. Evolution. 2003;57:2139-46 pubmed
    ..These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that traits most important for sexual selection are particularly susceptible to the effects of deleterious mutations. ..
  3. Møller A, Hobson K. Heterogeneity in stable isotope profiles predicts coexistence of populations of barn swallows Hirundo rustica differing in morphology and reproductive performance. Proc Biol Sci. 2004;271:1355-62 pubmed
    ..Polymorphism can be maintained only if fitness is similar for birds from categories of isotope profiles. We suggest that fluctuating selection or migration-selection balance may maintain the observed polymorphism. ..
  4. Møller A, Karadas F, Mousseau T. Antioxidants in eggs of great tits Parus major from Chernobyl and hatching success. J Comp Physiol B. 2008;178:735-43 pubmed publisher
    ..These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that radioactive contamination reduced levels of dietary antioxidants in yolks, with negative consequences for hatching success and reproductive success. ..
  5. Møller A, Hobson K, Mousseau T, Peklo A. Chernobyl as a population sink for barn swallows: tracking dispersal using stable-isotope profiles. Ecol Appl. 2006;16:1696-705 pubmed
    ..These findings suggest that stable-isotope measurements can provide information about population processes following environmental perturbations...
  6. Møller A, Mousseau T, de Lope F, Saino N. Elevated frequency of abnormalities in barn swallows from Chernobyl. Biol Lett. 2007;3:414-7 pubmed
    ..The most parsimonious hypothesis for abnormalities in animal and human populations alike is that the effects are caused by the same underlying cause, viz. radiation derived from the Chernobyl accident...
  7. Møller A, Nielsen J. Malaria and risk of predation: a comparative study of birds. Ecology. 2007;88:871-81 pubmed
    ..Furthermore, this study demonstrates that protozoan infections are a common cause of death for hosts mediated by increased risk of predation...
  8. Møller A, Mousseau T, Lynn C, Lynnn C, Ostermiller S, Rudolfsen G. Impaired swimming behaviour and morphology of sperm from barn swallows Hirundo rustica in Chernobyl. Mutat Res. 2008;650:210-6 pubmed publisher
    ..These results are consistent with the hypothesis that sperm behaviour and morphology have been affected by radiation due to the Chernobyl accident...
