- Stable isotope signature of philopatry and dispersal in a migratory songbirdGary R Graves
Department of Systematic Biology, MRC 116, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC 20560, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:8096-100. 2002..These data indicate that age-specific and altitudinal effects must be considered when using delta(13)C values to delineate the geographic origin of avian species with large altitudinal and latitudinal ranges...
- Source pool geometry and the assembly of continental avifaunasGary R Graves
Department of Vertebrate Zoology, MRC 116, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, P O Box 37012, Washington, DC 20013 7012, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:7871-6. 2005..These results are broadly consistent with the predictions of niche-assembly models but offer little support for stochastic assembly models...
- Mesoscale patterns of altitudinal tenancy in migratory wood warblers inferred from stable carbon isotopesGary R Graves
Department of Vertebrate Zoology, MRC 116, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, P O Box 37012, Washington, D C 20013 7012, USA
Ecol Appl 19:1264-73. 2009..However, tissues with high metabolic rates are unlikely to retain much isotopic signal of wintering habitat use by the time migrants reach their breeding territories...
- Host associations and evolutionary relationships of avian blood parasites from West AfricaJon S Beadell
Center for Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics, National Zoological Park, Smithsonian Institution, 3001 Connecticut Avenue, Washington, DC 20008, USA
Int J Parasitol 39:257-66. 2009..Since host specificity may also influence parasite virulence, these results argue for considering the impact of haematozoa on avian hosts on a lineage-specific basis...
- Malarial parasites as geographical markers in migratory birds?Sylvia M Fallon
Smithsonian Institution, Genetics Program, 3001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20008, USA
Biol Lett 2:213-6. 2006....
- Global phylogeographic limits of Hawaii's avian malariaJon S Beadell
Genetics Program, National Zoological Park and National Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC 20008, USA
Proc Biol Sci 273:2935-44. 2006..The rarity of this lineage in the continental New World and the restriction of closely related lineages to the Old World suggest limitations to the transmission of reproductively isolated parasite groups within the morphological species...
- Predicting continental-scale patterns of bird species richness with spatially explicit modelsCarsten Rahbek
Center of Macroecology, Institute of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Universitetsparken 15, 2100 Copenhagen O, Denmark
Proc Biol Sci 274:165-74. 2007..Our findings imply that correlative climatic models substantially underestimate the importance of historical factors and small-scale niche-driven assembly processes in shaping contemporary species-richness patterns...
- A multilocus molecular phylogeny of the parrots (Psittaciformes): support for a Gondwanan origin during the cretaceousTimothy F Wright
Department of Biology, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM, USA
Mol Biol Evol 25:2141-56. 2008..These well-resolved molecular phylogenies will be of value for comparative studies of behavior, ecology, and life history in parrots...
