  1. ncbi request reprint Specific floater home ranges and prospective behaviour in the European starling, Sturnus vulgaris
    Michael Tobler
    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Naturwissenschaften 91:85-9. 2004
    ..The results suggest that floaters try to acquire information about local breeding communities. One specific type of information may be the location of potential breeding sites...
  2. ncbi request reprint Maternal androgens in the pied flycatcher: timing of breeding and within-female consistency
    Michael Tobler
    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    Oecologia 151:731-40. 2007
    ..High within-female consistency also highlights the possibility that there may be some underlying genetic variation in yolk androgen levels...
  3. pmc Costly steroids: egg testosterone modulates nestling metabolic rate in the zebra finch
    Michael Tobler
    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, Ecology Building, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Biol Lett 3:408-10. 2007
    ..We conclude that apart from immunosuppressive effects, high levels of egg steroids may also entail costs in terms of increased energy expenditure...

    Michael Tobler
    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, Ecology Building, SE 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Horm Behav 52:640-5. 2007
    ..Our results demonstrate long-term effects of prenatal T on neophobic responses in adult zebra finches. We hypothesize that prenatal T may be one underlying mechanism for individual differences routine formation...

    Michael Tobler
    Department of Biology, Section for Animal Ecology, Lund University, Lund, Sweden

    Michael Tobler
    Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    Naturwissenschaften 95:775-9. 2008
    ..Our finding is novel, because male vulnerability to predation is not directly related to male traits involved in courtship, but rather due to other sexual differences in behavior and ultimately, oxygen demands...
