Parasites can impact the behavior of animals and alter the interplay with ecological factors in their environment. Studying the effects that parasites have on animals thus requires accurate estimates of infections in individuals. However, quantifying parasites can be challenging due to several factors. Laboratory techniques, physiological fluctuati...
Article
In a seasonal world, organisms are continuously adjusting physiological processes relative to local environmental conditions. Owing to their limited heat and fat storage capacities, small animals, such as songbirds, must rapidly modulate their metabolism in response to weather extremes and changing seasons to ensure survival. As a consequence of pr...
Data
Zip file contains five files: ‘locations_data.csv’; ‘kud2009. Rdata’; ‘kud2010.Rdata’; ‘kud2011.Rdata’; ‘kud2012.Rdata’; ‘kud2013.Rdata’. ‘locations_data.csv’ contains the mean overwintering estimated locations (lat, long) of 22 blackbirds derived from Geolocators during the years 2009–2014 and plotted in Figure 2 panel a (red symbols). Estimated l...
Data
Results of the best ranked model (Model 1). Survival estimates and confidence interval values predicted by model 1 of migrants and residents during winter and summer. Values are plotted in Figure 3.
Data
Zip file containing the necessary files to run the a session of the E-surge software (estimation of multi-events survival models). More information on E-surge see Gimenez et al., 2014. Download for free here: https://www.cefe.cnrs.fr/fr/ressources/films/34-french/recherche/bc/bbp/264-logiciels File called "seasonalfms.mod", contains the actual sess...
Data
Raw presence data derived from capture-recapture and radio telemetry data of 262 European blackbirds used for the survival analysis.
Data
Presence-absence matrix during winter and summer of 262 European blackbirds between 2009–2016. This matrix was built with Source data 1 .
Data
Lat and long and distance to the breeding grounds (km) to the 29 overwintering locations of European blackbirds (2009–2014) used to generate histogram of Figure 2 panel b.

To evolve and to be maintained, seasonal migration, despite its risks, has to yield fitness benefits compared with year-round residency. Empirical data supporting this prediction have remained elusive in the bird literature. To test fitness related benefits of migration, we studied a partial migratory population of European blackbirds (Turdus merul...

Every year, billions of wild diurnal songbirds migrate at night. To do so, they shift their daily rhythm from diurnality to nocturnality. In captivity this is observed as a gradual transition of daytime activity developing into nocturnal activity, but how wild birds prepare their daily rhythms for migration remains largely unknown. Using an automat...

Animals adopt different strategies to communicate by means of sound in noisy environments. Some animals increase, while others decrease, their vocal activity in the presence of interference. Anuran amphibians from diverse latitudes exhibit both kinds of responses. Recent studies have shown that males of Batrachyla taeniata and Batrachyla antartandi...
