Contrasting effects of climate on juvenile body size in a Southern Hemisphere passerine bird

Kruuk, Loeske; Osmond, Helen; Cockburn, Andrew


Despite extensive research on the topic, it has been difficult to reach general conclusions as to the effects of climate change on morphology in wild animals: in particular, the effects of warming temperatures have been associated with increases, decreases or stasis in body size in different populations. Here, we use a fine-scale analysis of associations between weather and offspring body size in a long-term study of a wild passerine bird, the cooperatively breeding superb fairy-wren, in...[Show more]
