Incubation behavior adjustments, driven by ambient temperature variation, improve synchrony between hatch dates and caterpillar peak in a wild bird population

Abstract:

For organisms living in seasonal environments, synchronising the peak energetic demands of reproduction with peak food availability is a key challenge. Understanding the extent to which animals can adjust behaviour to optimise reproductive timing, and the cues they use to do this, is essential for predicting how they will respond to future climate change. In birds, the timing of peak energetic demand is largely determined by the timing of clutch initiation, however, considerable alterations c...
