  • 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 ...
