Arrival and weight gain of Red Knot Calidris canutus, Ruddy Turnstone Arenaria interpresand Sanderling Calidris alba staging in Delaware Bay in spring

Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 6 abstract Delaware Bay is an important spring staging area for shorebirds migrating north along the easternAmerican coast, with birds relying heavily on Horseshoe Crab Limulus polyphemus eggs duringtheir stay. While many species use the Bay, three species are of particular interest: Red KnotCalidris canutus, Ruddy Turnstone Arenaria interpres […]

Mitochondrial Control-Region Sequences in Two Shorebird Species, the Turnstone and the Dunlin, and Their Utility in Population Genetic Studies

Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 1 abstract Because of its rapid rate of sequence evolution, al most strictly maternal mode of inheritance, and lack of recombination, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is the molecule of choice both for studies of intraspecific sequence divergence (Wilson et al. 1985; but see Gyllensten et al. I99 1) and for […]

Populations migrations biometrics and molt of the Turnstone Arenaria interpres interpres on the East Atlantic coastline with special reference to the Siberian USSR population

Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 2 abstract Three populations of Turnstone were studied. Primarily a series of comparisons were made between the Canadian-Greenland population which winters mainly in western Europe ad the Siberian population which winters partly in southern Africa. There was no long term change in the size of the latter population over […]

The Ruddy Turnstone, Arenaria interpres interpres, a NewDefinitive Host for Gynaecotyla squatarolae (Digenea:Microphallidae)

Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 4 abstract The ruddy turnstone, Arenaria interpres interpres, a migratory Korean bird, was proved to be a natural definitivehost for Gynaecotyla squatarolae (Digenea: Microphallidae). The ruddy turnstone was found dead at the seashore of Okgueup,Gunsan-si, Jeollabuk-do. The intestinal tract was examined, and 98 unknown flukes were recovered. Min Seo […]

Spring migration of Turnstones from the Banc d’Arguin in Mauritania

Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 3 abstract The majority of the Turnstones Arenaria interpres wintering on the Banc d’Arguin, Mauritania, probably breeds in N. Scandinavia and NW. Russia, but a sizeable proportion may be derived from Greenland and NE. Canada. Juveniles did not prepare to migrate to the breeding grounds, but in the course […]

Biometrics of Turnstone Arenaria interpret migrating in autumnthrough the Gulf of Gdansk region

Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 8 abstract In this study we analyse biometrical data of 69 adult and 389 juvenile Turnstones Arenaria interpres caught during autumn migration when passing through the Gulf of Gdansk in the period 1983-1999. Adults had significantly longer wings than juveniles. WLODZIMIERZ MEISSNER and LESZEK KOZIROG, ORNIS SVECICA 11:181-188, 2001 […]


Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) Science Article 5 abstract Ruddy Turnstones (Arenaria interpres) may be highly aggressive toward other species of shorebirds, including the Short-billed Dowitcher (Limnodromus griseus) (Burger et al.1979), but agonistic behavior of turnstones toward dowitchers at specific foraging sites isnot well documented. Turnstones are opportunistic foragers and may use many feeding methods. DOUGLAS […]
