- Incubation patterns in a central-place forager affect lifetime reproductive success: scaling of patterns from a foraging bout to a lifetimeAkiko Shoji
Department of Biology, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
PLoS ONE 6:e17760. 2011..We focus on the ancient murrelet, Synthliboramphus antiquus, an alcid with exceptionally long incubation shift lengths, and test the impact of environmental factors on incubation shift length in relation to reproductive success...
- High corticosterone, not high energy cost, correlates with reproductive success in the burrow-nesting ancient murreletAkiko Shoji
Environment Canada, National Wildlife Research Centre, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
PLoS ONE 8:e84280. 2013..However, CORT levels and incubation shift lengths were not correlated, suggesting that birds that undertook prolonged incubation shifts did so only when their energy stores were not jeopardized. ..
