  2. 2. Bird orientation: external cues and ecological factors

    University dissertation from Johan Bäckman, Animal ecology, Ecology Building, SE-22362 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Johan Bäckman; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tracking radar; Emlen funnel.; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; oscillatory orientation; roosting flight; scatter; concentration; heading; cue calibration; light dependent; magnetoreception; subcutaneous fat stores; body condition; energetics; geomagnetic field; visual cues; orientation; birds; migration;

    Abstract : Birds are generally capable of accurate orientation. In this thesis I present studies about the external cues and the ecological factors that influences bird orientation. A multitude of environmental cues are used to select and maintain a proper direction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Avian migration: the role of geomagnetic cues

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

  4. 4. Predator-prey interactions in freshwater systems: The importance of chemical communication

    University dissertation from Kajsa Åbjörnsson, Limnology, Ecology Building, S-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Kajsa Åbjörnsson; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; Ecology; Ekologi; Hydrobiology; trophic cascades; non-lethal effects; benefits; costs; heredity; predator experience; alarmsubstances; dietary cues; amphibian larvae; invertebrates; visibility; fish; behaviour; Predator-prey; chemical cues;

    Abstract : Predator released chemical cues provide a valuable source of information to prey organisms that can be used to alter their behaviour in order to reduce predation risk. In this thesis, I have examined under what circumstances chemical cues may be used by prey, and if prey discriminate between different cues. READ MORE
