  • Biparental incubation-scheduling : no experimental evidence for major energetic constraints 

    Bulla, M; Cresswell, Will; Rutten, A; Valcu, M; Kempenaers, B (2015) - Journal article
    Incubation is energetically demanding, but it is debated whether these demands constrain incubation-scheduling (i.e., the length, constancy, and timing of incubation bouts) in cases where both parents incubate. Using 2 ...
  • Bipolar conductance switching of single anthradithiophene molecules 

    Borca, Bogdana; Schendel, Verena; Petuya, Remi; Pentegov, Ivan; Michnowicz, Tomasz; Kraft, Ulrike; Klauk, Hagen; Arnau, Andres; Wahl, Peter; Schlickum, Uta; Kern, Klaus (2015-12-22) - Journal article

    Manu, S; Imong, I. S.; Cresswell, Will (2010-09) - Journal article
    The mountains of south-eastern Nigeria are a western extension of the Cameroon mountain range, which is classified as an endemic bird area (EBA). Unlike its eastern extension in Cameroon, most of the ornithological surveys ...
  • Birds build camouflaged nests 

    Bailey, Ida Elizabeth; Muth, Felicity; Morgan, Kate; Meddle, Simone L.; Healy, Susan Denise (2015-01) - Journal article
    It is assumed that many birds attempt to conceal their nests by using camouflage. To our knowledge, however, no previous experimental studies have explicitly tested this assumption. To explore whether birds choose materials ...
  • Bis(phenylphosphonic) anhydride 

    Li, Yang; Hua, Guoxiong; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2009-11) - Journal article
