Nestling growth and body condition of critically endangered orange-bellied parrots Neophema chrysogaster
Intervening when bird nestlings are performing poorly relative to the population mean may be a management priority if individuals are of high-conservation value. Assessing body condition may enable identification of potential problems before they cause mortality. We aimed to provide a tool for conservation managers to identify underperforming nestlings in a severely threatened bird population. We develop models of nestling growth and empirically quantify nestling body condition of critically...[Show more]
