Title
Climatic change explains much of the 20th century advance in laying date of Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus in The Netherlands
Author(s): Both C., Piersma T. & Roodbergen S.P. 2005.
Abstract: Long time series allow us to look back in time and examine how birds responded to changes in their environment. During the second half of the 20th century, not only did Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus experience an increase in spring temperatures,..[more]..

Author(s): Byrkjedal, I. et al.
Abstract: In Northern Lapwings Vanellus vanellus female-female aggression is common in polygynous ma-tings (Liker & Székely 1997, G. B. Gr0nst0limpubi.), and leads to discrete female territorieswithin the territories of polygynous males (J. E. Hafs-mo unpubl.)..[more]..

Title
Do northern lapwings Vanellus vanellus and little ringed plovers
Charadrius dubius rely on egg crypsis during incubation?

Author(s): Miroslav SALEK and Eva CEPAKOVA
Abstract: We studied the possible role of clutch crypsis in antipredator behaviour in two
related species of ground-nesting waders with camouflaged eggs, the northern lapwing (Vanellus
vanellus) and the little ringed plover (Charadrius dubius). We examined w..[more]..

Title
Mating pattern and mate choice in the Lapwing Vanellus vanellus
Author(s): A. Liker and T. Szekely
Abstract: We investigated the mating behaviour of Lapwings in a Hungarian grassland between 1992
and 1994. 80% of males were monogamous and 20% were polygynous (n=59 males).
Polygynous males acquired two females (primary, secondary) that laid one clutch each..[more]..

ANTI-PREDATORY BEHAVIOR OF LAPWINGS: FIELD EVIDENCE OF DISCRIMINATIVE ABILITIES
Author(s): JEFFREY R. WALTERS
Abstract: The responses of three species of lapwings (Charadriidae: Vanellus spp.) to various potential predators and physically similar non-predators were recorded in the field in Kenya and Venezuela to determine how responses varied with stimulus and context..[more]..

Author(s): Kis J ., A . Liker & T. Székely 2000
Abstract: Lapwings Vanellus vanellus are ground-nesting waders and they protect their nests by aggressively attacking predators near their nests . We investigated the response of parents to natural predators and a dummy Hooded Crow Corvus [corone] cornix durin..[more]..

Aerobatic components in the song-flight display of male Lapwings Vanellus vanellus as cues in female choice.
Author(s): Gronstol G.B. (1996)
Abstract: The song-flight of male Lapwings was studied on a farmland area in western Norway in a population with a high incidence of polygyny. On the basis of video recordings individual performance of song-flight display was scored and correlated against attr..[more]..

Comparative diurnal and nocturnal diet and foraging in Eurasian Golden Plovers Pluvialis apricaria and Northern Lapwings Vanellus vanellus wintering on arable farmland.
Author(s): Gillings S. & Sutherland W.J.
Abstract: Knowledge of diet and intake rates is a useful first step in understanding the distribution and behaviour of foragers. The diet of Golden Plovers and Lapwings feeding on arable farmland has been rarely studied. Yet these species increasingly occupy t..[more]..

Conservation management of Lapwing Vanellus vanellus on lowland arable farmland in the UK
Author(s): ROB SHELDON, MARK BOLTON, SIMON GILLINGS & ANDY WILSON
Abstract: Lapwing Vanellus vanellus is known to be declining throughout much of its UK breeding range. The ecological requirements of the species are well known and a variety of mechanisms exist which can be implemented to help recovery. Arable options within ..[more]..

Author(s): CLAIRE L. DEVEREUX, CLAIRE U. MCKEEVER, TIM G. BENTON & MARK J. WHITTINGHAM
Abstract: Agricultural change is often cited as a causal factor in the decline of the UK’s farmland birds because bird declines have mirrored changes in agricultural practices. Although much is known about the mechanisms driving population declines on arable s..[more]..

Aggression among female lapwings, Vanellus vanellus
Author(s): ANDRAUS LIKER and TAMAUS SZEuKELY
