  • Reproductive strategies change with time in a newly founded colony of spotless starlings (Sturnus unicolor) 

    Celis, P.; Graves, J.A.; Gil, D. (2021-05-07) - Journal article
    Variation in avian reproductive strategies is often studied from a comparative perspective, since even closely-related taxa differ greatly in the degree of polygyny, extra-pair paternity (EPP) or intra-specific brood-parasitism. ...
  • A guide to state–space modeling of ecological time series
