1. Long sperm fertilize more eggs in a bird.

    Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological ... 282(1799):20141897 (2015) PMID 25621327 PMCID PMC4286041

    Sperm competition, in which the ejaculates of multiple males compete to fertilize a female's ova, results in strong selection on sperm traits. Although sperm size and swimming velocity are known to independently affect fertilization success in certain species, exploring the relationship between ...

  6. Bird senses: Vision

    New Scientist 219(2928):ii (2013)

    Some birds can see behind them, others see UV or great distances, and a few can even “see” with sound
  7. Bird senses: Taste, smell and magnetism

    New Scientist 219(2928):vi (2013)

    Mysteries and myths surrounded the quest for taste and smell in birds but now focus is on an intriguing sixth sense

    New Scientist 219(2928):iv (2013)

    Extraordinary adaptations underpin the everyday activities of a dabbling duck or an owl on the hunt
  11. Bird senses: What next

    New Scientist 219(2928):viii (2013)

    The seemingly arcane study of bird senses holds huge potential to improve human health. So much remains unknown

  14. Comparison between Normalised and Unnormalised 454-Sequencing Libraries for Small-Scale RNA-Seq Studies.

    Comparative and Functional Genomics 2012:281693 (2012) PMID 22319409 PMCID PMC3272792

    Next-generation sequencing of transcriptomes (RNA-Seq) is being used increasingly in studies of nonmodel organisms. Here, we evaluate the effectiveness of normalising cDNA libraries prior to sequencing in a small-scale study of the zebra finch. We find that assemblies produced from normalised li...

  16. Genetic mapping of the major histocompatibility complex in the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata).

    Immunogenetics 63(8):523 (2011) PMID 21494955

    Genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) have received much attention in immunology, genetics, and ecology because they are highly polymorphic and play important roles in parasite resistance and mate choice. Until recently, the MHC of passerine birds was not well-described. However, t...
  17. The genome of a songbird.

    Nature 464(7289):757 (2010) PMID 20360741 PMCID PMC3187626

    The zebra finch is an important model organism in several fields with unique relevance to human neuroscience. Like other songbirds, the zebra finch communicates through learned vocalizations, an ability otherwise documented only in humans and a few other animals and lacking in the chicken-the on...
