Article
Full-text available
Previous studies have demonstrated a correlation between longevity and brain size in a variety of taxa. Little research has been devoted to understanding this link in parrots; yet parrots are well-known for both their exceptionally long lives and cognitive complexity. We employed a large-scale comparative analysis that investigated the influence of...

Full-text available
The elusive and Critically Endangered silvery pigeon Columba argentina is only found on small offshore islands in western Indonesia and Malaysia. Historically, trade records have suggested that, in addition to habitat degradation and invasive predators, commercial exploitation could be a threat to the species. The current study confirms this to be...

Parrots are well-known for their exceptionally long lives and cognitive complexity. While previous studies have demonstrated a correlation between longevity and brain size in a variety of taxa, little research has been devoted to understanding this link in parrots. Here we employed a large-scale comparative analysis that investigated the influence...
Article

In this article we report on observations of online trade in Critically Endangered Grey-backed Mynas (Acridotheres tricolor) from Baluran Nation Park, East Java, Indonesia. Between 19 and 24 different "locally poached" individuals of the species were recorded for trade on social media between April 2020 and March 2021. Considering the precarious co...

In this article we present a standardized dataset on 6659 songbirds (Passeriformes) highlighting information relevant to species conservation prioritization with a main focus to support the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). Data were collected from both scientific and grey literature as well as...
Article

The Sumatran Laughingthrush (Garrulax bicolor) is an island endemic bird species from Indonesia. Its populations have rapidly decreased over the last decades and where the species was once widespread, only fragmented populations now remain. The species is protected on a national level and any capture or trade of wild individuals is strictly prohibi...

Full-text available
Asian ring-necked parakeets (Alexandrinus manillensis, formerly Psittacula krameri, hereafter RNP) first bred in Germany in 1969. Since then, RNP numbers increased in all three major German subpopulations (Rhineland, Rhine-Main, Rhine-Neckar) over the period 2003-2018. In the Rhine-Neckar region, the population increased to more than fivefold withi...

Ecology and population development of Asian Ring-necked Parakeets (Alexandrinus manillensis) in Germany and Europe with acutal numbers. The Asian Ring-necked Parakeet or Rose-ringed Parakeet Alexandrinus manillensis (Bechstein, 1800) sensu Braun et al. (2016), so far Psittacula krameri manillensis, is a common breeding bird in Southern Asia. It is...
Article
Confiscated parrots are frequently introduced to captive populations in zoological institutions, regularly with insufficient health screening. This short communication describes a case where 25 confiscated parrots, from four different locations, were brought to the same zoological institution within two years, where they were kept under quarantine...
Article
In large parrots electro-stimulation is suitable for collecting semen, and therefore, to facilitate semen examination and artificial insemination. Previous studies have detected differences in the semen collection success rate and semen parameters between psittacine genera. It remained unclear whether these differences were genera-related, seasonal...
Article
In einer vorangegangenen Studie zur Gewinnung und Untersuchung von Sperma bei Großpapageien durch Elektrostimulation wurden deutliche Unterschiede zwischen verschiedenen Familien, Gattungen und Arten festgestellt. Hierbei blieb unklar, ob diese Unterschiede saisonal bedingt waren oder durch andere Faktoren beeinflusst wurden. Daher wurden die Erfol...
Article
The probable world first captive breeding success in Chilean Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis thagus) in captivity is reported. Two chicks were hand reared at Walsrode Birdpark, Germany in 2006. Parents were imported in October 2005 and were wild birds that had been injured and subsequently rescued. All 10 adult birds demonstrated detrimental...
