As the Goose Flies: Migration Routes and Timing Influence Patterns of Genetic Diversity in a Circumpolar Migratory Herbivore.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Diversity (14242818); Dec2022, Vol. 14 Issue 12, p1067, 23p

Lack of conspicuous sex‐biased dispersal patterns at different spatial scales in an Asian endemic goose species breeding in unpredictable steppe wetlands

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecology and Evolution, Vol 10, Iss 14, Pp 7006-7020 (2020)

Abstract: Abstract Dispersal affects the spatial distribution and population structure of species. Dispersal is often male‐biased in mammals while female‐biased in birds, with the notable exception of the Anatidae. In this study, we tested genetic evidence for s...

An invasive alien bivalve apparently provides a novel food source for moulting and wintering benthic feeding sea ducks

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Helgoland Marine Research, Vol 73, Iss 1, Pp 1-7 (2019)

Abstract: Abstract Since its introduction from North America in the 1970s, the American razor clam Ensis leei (M. Huber, 2015) has successfully spread throughout North Sea coasts from Spain to Norway and the United Kingdom to the western Baltic. We investigated ...

Artificial nest experiment reveals inter-guild facilitation in duck nest predation

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Global Ecology and Conservation, Vol 24, Iss , Pp e01305- (2020)

Abstract: Predation is the most important factor limiting Northern Hemisphere duck nest survival. While most avian nest predators take only eggs, mammalian predators also pose mortality risks to incubating ducks. Partial depredation of duck clutches elevates sub...

Stochastic simulations reveal few green wave surfing populations among spring migrating herbivorous waterfowl

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Nature Communications, Vol 10, Iss 1, Pp 1-12 (2019)

Abstract: The green wave hypothesis is often considered a key driver of spring migration in avian herbivores. Here the authors employ a multispecies comparison and find that migration did not track the green wave better than simulated stochastic migrations.

Wintering Swan Geese maximize energy intake through substrate foraging depth when feeding on buried Vallisneria natans tubers

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Avian Research, Vol 10, Iss 1, Pp 1-8 (2019)

Abstract: Abstract Background Foraging theory predicts that animals select patches that offer the highest net rate of energy gain. Hence, prey distribution patterns and spatiotemporal heterogeneity play important roles in determining animal feeding patch selecti...

Lead concentrations in blood from incubating common eiders (Somateria mollissima) in the Baltic Sea

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environment International, Vol 137, Iss , Pp - (2020)

Abstract: Here we investigate if lead may be a contributing factor to the observed population decline in a Baltic colony of incubating eiders (Somateria mollissima). Body mass and blood samples were obtained from 50 incubating female eiders at the Baltic breedin...

Obesity-linked suppression of membrane-bound O-acyltransferase 7 (MBOAT7) drives non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): eLife, Vol 8 (2019)

Abstract: Recent studies have identified a genetic variant rs641738 near two genes encoding membrane bound O-acyltransferase domain-containing 7 (MBOAT7) and transmembrane channel-like 4 (TMC4) that associate with increased risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver dise...

Annual variation in waterbird clutch initiation date in relation to spring thaw in Arctic Russia.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Plant dispersal by Canada geese in Arctic Greenland

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Polar Research, Vol 37, Iss 1 (2018)

Abstract: Despite the abundance of migratory geese as herbivores in the Arctic, and ongoing changes in their populations and distributions, little is known about their role in seed dispersal. Climate change requires Arctic plants to adjust their distributions, a...
