Variation in body condition indices of crimson finches by sex, breeding stage, age, time of day, and year

Milenkaya, O.; Weinstein, Nicole; Legge, Sarah; Walters, Jeffrey R.


Body condition indices are increasingly applied in conservation to assess habitat quality, identify stressed populations before they decline, determine effects of disturbances, and understand mechanisms of declines. To employ condition indices in this manner, we need first to understand their baseline variability and sources of variation. Here, we used crimson finches (Neochmia phaeton), a tropical passerine, to describe the variation in seven commonly used condition indices by sex, age,...[Show more]
