Title
NATURAL AND INDUCED MAGNETIZATION IN THE BOBOLINK, DOLICHONYX ORYZIVORUS (AVES: ICTERIDAE)
Author(s): ROBERT C. BEASON and WILLIAM J. BRENNAN
Abstract: The magnetic characteristics of the heads from 28 bobolinks [Icteridae:
Dolichonyx oryzivorus (L.)] were analysed using remanence magnetometers. The
natural remanent magnetization of 12 freshly preserved heads averaged 3-20xl0~7

Title
SPATIAL RESPONSES OF BOBOLINKS (DOLICHONYX ORYZIVORUS)
NEAR DIFFERENT TYPES OF EDGES IN NORTHERN IOWA

Author(s): ROBERT J. FLETCHER, JR. AND ROLF R. KOFORD
Abstract: Habitat edges are well-studied components of fragmented landscapes, yet factors
mediating edge effects remain unclear. We report how different types of edges surrounding
patches may affect spatial distributions of Bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus), ..[more]..

Title
DOES THE AVIAN OPHTHALMIC NERVE CARRY MAGNETIC NAVIGATIONAL
INFORMATION?

Author(s): ROBERT C. BEASON AND PETER SEMM
Abstract: The bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus) uses the earth’s magnetic field as one source of directional information for its migratory orientation. However, the location and structure of the magnetoreceptors that transduce the magnetic information to the ne..[more]..

Title
Preliminary Study in whether land management affects dialect formation in Bobolinks
Author(s): Anastasia M. Yarbrough
Abstract: Song dialects occur when individuals share similarity in song phrases at the group level. Most hypotheses regarding formation and maintenance of dialects attempt to explain how females select mates through preferences for local song types (Payne et a..[more]..

Title
PHOTOPERIODISM AND THE ANNUAL TESTICULAR CYCLE OF THE BOBOLINK (DOLICHONYX ORYZIVORUS), A TRANS EQUATORIAL MIGRANT, AS COMPARED WITH TWO TEMPERATE ZONE MIGRANTS
Author(s): WILLIAM L. ENGELS
Abstract: It is now quite generally accepted that seasonal changes in day-length play an
important role in the temporal regulation of several annual cyclic phenomena in
many birds of the northern hemisphere. Best known is the effect of photoperiods
on the a..[more]..

Title
Male and Female Reproductive Strategies in the Polygynous Bobolink
Author(s): Matthew P. Moskwik and Margaret A. O’Connell
Abstract: Most species of birds are socially monogamous, however approximately 8% of bird species are polygynous. By mating polygynously,
females lose paternal care, but might gain access to a superior territory or male. We examined five factors that affect p..[more]..
