... climate change, development and fitness. We investigated whether phenotypic consequences of the thermal environment in early life remained in adulthood in two studies on Japanese quail ( Coturnix japonica ). Birds were raised under simulated heatwave, cold snap or control conditions, from hatching until...

... on either side of it. Twelve birds (four per treatment) were randomly selected and killed by cervical dislocation at 42 days old to analyse the fatty acid profiles of their cerebral hemispheres and determine whether the levels of n-3 LCPUFAs in their blood reflected an accretion in their brain...

... received less attention. In birds, asynchronous hatching creates challenging developmental conditions for the last-hatched chicks, but differential allocation in last-laid eggs might help to compensate this initial handicap. The relative importance and potential interaction between pre- and post-hatching...

...Tatiana S. Filatova; Denis V. Abramochkin; Holly A. Shiels ABSTRACT Birds occupy a unique position in the evolution of cardiac design. Their hearts are capable of cardiac performance on par with, or exceeding that of mammals, and yet the structure of their cardiomyocytes resembles those of reptiles...

... aerodynamics; if they act in the same plane, lift from the tail might compensate for lift lost over the fuselage (body), reducing induced drag with a more even downwash profile. However, textbook aeronautical principles should be applied with caution because birds have highly capable sensing and active control...

... but data for birds remain scarce. We tested the hypothesis that colonization of germ-free chicks from a quail line selected for a high emotional reactivity (E+) with GM from a line with low emotional reactivity (E−) would reduce their emotional behaviour in comparison with germ-free chicks from an E+ line...
