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.

Weather-dependent variation in the winter diet of urban roosting Long-eared Owls (Asio otus) in Pécs (Hungary)

Posted on 7. February, 2018.

Long-eared Owls (Asio otus)  usually winter in groups in settlements, hunt at night and rest in evergreen trees during the day. From prey remnants regurgitated as pellets, one can detect species present in their hunting areas and changes in their abundance. Our aim was to reveal how the ratio of small mammal species in Long-eared Owl prey changes during the winter, since weather can influence hunting success and the availability of prey.

Halocarbenes may deplete atmospheric ozone - Free review article

Posted on 1. February, 2018.

The stratospheric ozone (O3) layer protects biological processes on Earth by absorbing the more harmful solar UV radiation, thereby preventing this radiation from reaching Earth’s surface. It was found that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), had long atmospheric lifetimes and could reach the stratosphere where they photocleaved to yield Cl atoms which destroyed O3 in a catalytic chain reaction.

The dispersal of rodent-borne strains of Aphanoascus keratinophilus and Chrysosporium tropicum by pellets of predatory birds

Posted on 18. December, 2017.

Pathogenic species of yeast, yeast-like fungi and moulds have been recovered from faeces, feathers, beaks and cloacae as well as pellets of species of migratory and sedentary birds. Bird pellets, in particular pellets of predatory birds, are an especially suitable model for studies of circulation routes of dermatophytes and other keratinophilic fungi as they contain undigested food remains, which are rich in keratin (e.g. feathers, fur).
