The historical frequency of head-colour morphs in the Gouldian Finch (Erythrura gouldiae)

Gilby, Amanda J.; Pryke, Sarah; Griffith, Simon C.


The endangered Gouldian Finch (Erythura gouldiae) possesses a genetic colour polymorphism in the form of three genetically determined head-colours (yellow, black and red) that coexist in the same population. The spatial and temporal pattern of morph ratios within this species provides insight into the selective pressures acting on and maintaining the different forms. To investigate spatial and temporal patterns in the relative historical abundance of the different Gouldian Finch morphs, we...[Show more]
