Fat and pectoral muscle in migrating Sedge Warblers Acrocephalus schoenobaenus
Author(s): Chris P.F. Redfern, Vicky J. Topp and Phil Jones
Abstract: Increases in fat and pectoral muscle mass are important physiological changes associated with migration, but the extent to which these are linked is uncertain. The relationship between fat and pectoral muscle in first-year Sedge Warblers Acrocephalus..[more]..

Survival rates of adult Reed Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus at a northern and southern site in England
Author(s): Chris B. Thaxter, Chris P.F. Redfern and Richard M. Bevan
Abstract: Mark-recapture ringing data from Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire and Gosforth Park in Newcastle upon Tyne were used to estimate adult survival rates in a southerly and a northerly population of Reed Warblers in England. The computer program MARK was use..[more]..

How does age and body condition affect migratory restlessness and orientation in Reed Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus?
Author(s): Korner-Nievergelt, F., Liechti, F. & Bruderer, B
Abstract: Orientation cage experiments were performed with 260 Reed Warblers on the southern coast of Spain during autumn 1996, in order to test the hypothesis that birds in good body condition should exhibit a higher amount of migratory restlessness and an ac..[more]..

Does tape-luring of migrating eurasian reed-warblers increase number of recruits or capture probability?
Author(s): Mich l Schaub, Regine Schwilch and Lukas Jenni
Abstract: Tape-luring often is used in studies of bird migration, and the technique can strongly augment the total number of birds captured. Additional captures from tape-luring could result from increasing the capture probability of birds already at the stopo..[more]..

The study of bird migration across the Western
Sahara; a contribution with sound luring

Author(s): Marc Herremans
Abstract: During spring and autumn migration 2003, the Swiss Ornithological Institute set up a concerted project in Mauritania to study bird migration across the Sahara. I participated with a side project using artificial induction of landfall with sound lurin..[more]..

Stabilising selection on wing length in reed warblers Acrocephalus
Author(s): Hall, K. S. S., Ryttman, H., Fransson, T. and Stolt,
Abstract: The size of an animal is of utmost importance for its overall success and each species is
thought to have its own optimal size. If this is true, size traits ought to be under
stabilising selection unless the animal is living in a highly unstable en..[more]..

High Migratory Fuel Loads Impair Predator Evasion in Sedge Warblers
Author(s): Cecilia Kullberg, Sven Jakobsson, and Thord Fransson
Abstract: During migration, many species of birds rely on
stored fat for fuel. The extra mass taken on for migration
entails costs (Witter and Cuthill 1993). Time
and energy must be devoted to foraging to build up
fat loads, and increased feeding may incre..[more]..

Song and the song control pathway in the brain can develop independently of exposure to song in the sedge warbler
Author(s): Stefan Leitner, Joanne Nicholson, Bernd Leisler, Timothy J. DeVoogd and Clive K. Catchpole
Abstract: Previous studies have shown that female sedge warblers choose to mate with males that have more complex
songs, and sexual selection has driven the evolution of both song complexity and the size of the major
song control area (HVc) in the brain. In ..[more]..

Dutch Sedge Warblers Acrocephalus schoenobaenus and West-African rainfall: Empirical data and simulation modelling show low population resilience in fragmented marshlands.
Author(s): Foppen R., Ter Braak C.J., Verboom J. & Reijnen R.
Abstract: Sedge Warbler populations in The Netherlands have declined dramatically over the last 25 years, especially between 1973-75 and 1982-85. Population declines correlate with yearly rainfall in the western part of the Sahel-Soudan zone, the most probable..[more]..

Movement patterns of European Reed Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus and Sedge Warblers A. schoenobaenus before and during autumn migration.
Author(s): Chernetsov N. & Titov N.
Abstract: The foraging movements of European Reed Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus and Sedge Warblers Acrocephalus schoenobaenus at migratory stopover sites were studied by comparing the frequency distribution of distances between capture-recapture localities ..[more]..
