Photo: Comparative Physiology — BIO The status signalling hypothesis aims to explain within-species variation in ornamentation by suggesting that some ornaments signal dominance status. Here, we use multilevel meta-analytic models to challenge the textbook example of this hypothesis, the black bib of house sparrows Passer madár hemoparasites.
We conducted a systematic review, and obtained primary data from published and unpublished studies to test whether dominance rank is positively associated with bib size across studies. Contrary to previous studies, the overall effect size i. Furthermore, we found several biases in the literature that further question the support available for the status signalling hypothesis.
We discuss several explanations including pleiotropic, population- and context-dependent effects. Our findings call for reconsidering this established textbook example in evolutionary and behavioural ecology, and should stimulate renewed madár hemoparasites in understanding within-species variation in ornamental traits. Sex-biased breeding dispersal is predicted by social environment in birds Végvári, Z. Ecology and Evolution Here, we investigate madár hemoparasites differences in both natal and breeding dispersal distances using a large dataset on birds including 86 species from 41 families.
These results may indicate that the rare sex has a stronger tendency to disperse in order to find new mating opportunities.
Alternatively, higher mortality of the more dispersive sex could account for biased ASRs, although our results do not give a strong support to this explanation. Since the direction of causality madár hemoparasites not yet known, we call for future studies to identify the causal relationships linking mortality, dispersal, and ASR. Pogány, Á. Behaviour, DOI: Sexual selection, especially assortative mating has been suggested as a possible mechanism contributing to the maintenance of different personality types within populations but little is known about non-random pair-formation with respect to personality traits in unconstrained choice tests.

Females associated most with males with neophobia scores similar to their madár hemoparasites. These results provide evidence that mating preferences and personality traits can covary, supporting evolutionary scenarios of assortative mating contributing to the maintenance of personality traits.
Journal of Field Ornithology, 89 2 Plasticine caterpillar Photo: Csenge Sinkovics In this paper we examined the accuracy and repeatability of estimates of the size of food items from video recordings.
To test the accuracy of measurements of prey size we molded artificial plasticine caterpillars and compared their size and volume as determined using measurements of length and width on screenshots of video recordings to their actual size and volume. We found that observers were able to accurately measure prey size and determine volume, with high agreement between the actual size and volume of plasticine caterpillars and the size and volume as determined from measurements made on screenshots from video recordings.
Overall, our results suggest that the madár hemoparasites of prey items delivered to nestlings by adults in video recordings can be accurately measured and those measurements, in turn, can be used to accurately determine the volume of those insect prey.
We use data from two urban and two forest sites in Hungary, collected over four consecutive years. Despite a trend of earlier leaf emergence in urban sites there is no evidence for an earlier peak in caterpillar abundance.
Thus the earlier breeding of urban bird populations is fereg gyogyit orokre associated with an earlier peak in caterpillar availability. We also found striking differences in the seasonal dynamics of caterpillar biomass between habitat types with a single clear peak in forests, and several much smaller madár hemoparasites in urban areas. Caterpillar biomass was 8. This higher biomass was not associated with taller trees in forest sites, or with tree species identity, and occurred despite most of our focal trees being native to the region.
Urban great tits laid smaller clutches, experienced more frequent nestling mortality from starvation, reared fewer offspring to fledging age, and their fledglings had lower body mass. Our study strongly indicates that food limitation is responsible for lower avian reproductive success in cities, which is driven by reduced availability of the preferred nestling diet, i.
Magyar állatorvosok lapja, Photo: Krisztián Szabó Defining the sex of individual birds can be crucial for scientific studies and captive breeding, as well. However, many bird species and almost all nestling can only be sexed via molecular methods.
The aim of this research was to test four frequently used universal bird sexing markers in 13 Neognathae bird orders and in different sample types. Our results confirm the universality of these primer pairs in most avian orders, but their application needs some consideration.

Another bird blood sample yielded a Wolbachia sequence, closely related to a moth endosymbiont. This is the first finding of insect Wolbachia DNA in the circulatory system of birds, which can be explained either by the inoculation of wolbachiae by blood-sucking vectors, or passing of Wolbachia DNA from the gut into the blood of this insectivorous bird species.

Journal of Field Ornithology, 88 3 :Photo: MTA-PE Evolutionary Ecology Research Group We studied the effects of both capturing, weighing and measuring, madár hemoparasites taking a blood sample, and the presence of video-cameras on the behavior of male and female Great Tits breeding in urban and forest a paraziták tisztítása rizzsel. Using a 2 x 2 block design, we compared the behavior and breeding success of parents that either were or were not captured on their nests a few days before behavioral observations, and of parents madár hemoparasites either were or were not habituated to the presence of a concealed video-recorder mounted on nest boxes.
We found no significant effects of habituation to the camera on bird behavior, but males captured in their nest boxes were more vigilant and hesitated longer before entering felnőtt keresztezett féreg lakik boxes, and also had slightly lower provisioning rates than males that had not been captured.
Captured females also tended to be more vigilant than non-captured females, but madár hemoparasites provisioning rates were not affected.
In males, capturing also influenced the behavior of their non-captured mates. We found no difference in the effects of capture in urban and forest habitats, and our treatments also had no effect on the mass, size, and survival of nestlings until fledging. Our results suggest that, for Great Tits, being captured results in sex-dependent behavioral effects that can last for at least several days. Using a formal meta-analytical approach, we carried out a systematic literature review to test whether predation on natural and artificial bird nests increased or decreased with habitat urbanization.
We found that the effect was highly heterogeneous among studies, due to contrasting results between studies that used artificial nests and those that used natural nests.
For artificial nests, survival rate tended to decrease with increasing urbanization, whereas for madár hemoparasites nests, survival was higher in more urbanized habitats. This discrepancy suggests that the direction of the relationship between urbanization and nest predation is likely to depend on the methodology of the study.
Behavioral Ecology, DOI: Innovative problem solving can be important to animals for survival and reproduction in nature, yet gyógyszer az emberi bélben élő paraziták számára found no evidence that females mated to males with poor problem-solving performance compensate for poor male quality by obtaining superior genes for their offspring from other males via cuckoldry.

However, female throat patch size did not correlate with fighting success against either viszketés férgekben a férgektől. Among the morphological traits studied, wing length was the best predictor of fighting success in females.
Our findings suggest a status signalling madár hemoparasites of throat patch size in males but not in females. Animal Cognition, 53—63, Photo: Bálint Preiszner Success in problem solving, a form of innovativeness, can help animals exploit their environments, and recent research suggests that it may madár hemoparasites with reproductive success.
Innovativeness may have a greater positive effect on fitness in more urbanized habitats. We tested this idea in great tits by measuring their problem-solving performance in two tasks. Urban pairs were significantly faster problem-solvers in both tasks. In one of the tasks positive fitness consequences were found, though irrespectively of urbanization. Neophobia, sensitivity to human disturbance, and risk taking in the presence of a predator did not explain the relationships of problem-solving performance either with habitat type or with reproductive success.
The reproductive benefit of innovativeness in great tits is similar in urban and natural madár hemoparasites, implying that problem-solving skills may be enhanced in urban populations by some other benefits or reduced costs. Behavioral EcologyUrban house sparrows flee from humans from shorter distances.
Drawing: Ernő Vincze Urban birds need to reduce their fear from humans to tolerate their presence. We show that urban madár hemoparasites sparrows in the field have shorter flight initiation distances from humans than rural ones, but in captivity they initially show similar fear from humans. However, urban sparrows show faster habituation, i. This difference may play a role in madár hemoparasites certain birds exploit urban habitats better than others. Vladimír Remeš, Robert P.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA —, Phylogenetic distribution of parental cooperation in birds included in this study. Figure shows madár hemoparasites cooperation tall black bars refer to high cooperation and phylogenetic reconstruction along branches. Parents in many animal species care for their offspring. In some species males care more, in other species females care more, whereas in jó antihelmintikus gyógyszerek other species the contribution of the sexes is equal.
Using the platyhelminthes példák állatokra comprehensive analyses of parental care to date, here we show that parents cooperate more when sexual selection is not intense and the adult sex ratio of males to females is not strongly skewed.

However, the degree of parental cooperation is unrelated to harshness and predictability of the ambient environment during the breeding season. These results suggest that several parental strategies may co-exist in a given set of ambient environment. The genetic sex-determination system predicts adult sex ratios in tetrapods.

Preiszner, B. Larger and more innovative birds get more attacks.

Our experimental results suggest that some common social interactions are not influenced by the apparent problem-solving ability of the group-mates, however birds may use subtle cues to to assess the problem-solving ability of their companions.

To test this idea, we compared the performance of house sparrows from urban and rural habitats in four novel problem solving tasks during which they had to acquire food from helmint immunitás feeders. These results demonstrate that problem solving success shows both individual consistency and context dependence, and whether or not urban individuals are more innovative across various situations.
