Associations between changing climate and body condition over decades in two southern hemisphere passerine birds

Gardner, Janet; Rowley, Eleanor; de Rebeira, Perry; de Rebeira, Alma; Brouwer, Lyanne

Description

Background Climate change presents considerable challenges for endotherms because they must maintain high, relatively constant body temperatures across a range of environmental conditions to ensure survival and optimise performance. Individuals exposed to changing weather must manage energy and water allocation to maintain thermal homeostasis, with consequences for body condition, and hence there is potential for selection because body condition is strongly linked to fitness. Understanding how...[Show more]
