Integrating avian life history, physiology and immune function: autoimmunity and immunosenescence in a cohort of aging birds.
The age of individual animals and the age structure of populations can influence host physiology, immune function, and the spread of infectious disease. Since 2007, 20 pigeons (hatched ca. December 2005) have been sampled least qu ...

Age-specific offspring provisioning in a long-lived seabird? A longitudinal study.
Common terns (Sterna hirundo) manage to fledge more offspring as they grow older (Zhang et al 2015 Journal of Animal Ecology), but these offspring have a lower recruitment probability and a lower lifetime reproductive success when ...

Isolation by distance in the cooperatively breeding acorn woodpecker INTERNSHIP
Dispersal is a key stage in the life-history of many organisms, but because it is difficult to study permanent relocation of individuals, dispersal remains poorly understood. In particular, dispersal is thought to be a key factor  ...

Comparing immune defence in arctic- and temperate-breeding geese
Over the past few decades barnacle geese have successfully colonized new breeding areas outside their traditional Arctic distribution, including temperate sites in the Baltic and North Sea. This offers a unique situation for compa ...

Is egg morphology related to female condition? A longitudinal study in a long-lived seabird
The size, volume, shape, colouration and patterning of avian eggs are highly variable, both within and between species. Although several hypotheses have been proposed (and tested), factors explaining intra-specific variation in eg ...

Integrating avian life history, physiology and immune function: are natural antibodies at the nexus of phylogeny, life history, and disease reservoir competence?
Complex relationships exist between phylogeny, life history, disease reservoir competence, and immune function. One component of the immune system that might serve as a nexus linking the other factors is "natural antibodies" (or N ...

Comparing mice and voles: Immune function of mice and voles in relation to ticks and infection with Borrelia burgdorferi s.l.
Yearly, approximately 25.000 people are diagnosed with Lyme borreliosis in the Netherlands. Lyme borreliosis is caused by a bacterial complex Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. transmitted by ticks. In the Netherlands, the main cause for h ...

Training animal athletes: how do flight training regimens and other husbandry activites influence flight performance?
Racing (or homing) pigeons are a sort of animal athletes. The flight performance of these birds depends on both their orientation abilities and their speed. Many aspects of a bird's life (e.g., age, experience, health status) and  ...
