Advances in the Study of Coevolution Between Avian Brood Parasites and Their Hosts

Feeney, William; Welbergen, Justin A.; Langmore, Naomi


The interactions between avian obligate interspecific brood parasites and their hosts provide tractable systems for studying coevolutionary processes in nature. This review highlights recent advances in understanding coevolution in these systems. First, we discuss the evolution and phylogenetic history of avian brood parasitism. Next, we examine coevolved adaptations and counteradaptations in brood parasites and hosts at all stages of the host nesting cycle: those that precede laying of the...[Show more]
