Now available on Fast Track: Egg size and shape variation in Rufous Bush Chats (Cercotrichas galactotes) breeding in date palm plantations: hatching success increases with egg elongation

Posted on 23. April, 2018.

In oviparous taxa such as birds, clutch characteristics (e.g. egg size, egg mass and the number of eggs) can be considered as energetic investment in reproduction. In this paper, we study variation in the principal component indices of egg size and shape in Rufous Bush Chats (Cercotrichas galactotes) breeding in date palm plantations in the Al Amri Oasis, north Algeria, in 2008–2009 and 2011–2013.
