To trill or not to trill? Territorial response to a heterospecific vocal trait in male collared doves, Streptopelia decaocto

Collared-Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) Science Article 3 abstract Responding of individuals outside the conspecific range has been largely explained by biases in sensory or cognitive systemstoward particular traits or trait values. More recently, it has been shown that such responses might occur if individuals stillrespond to signal traits that have been lost over time. Jean Secondi […]

Nonlinear phenomena and song evolution in Streptopelia doves

Collared-Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) Science Article 1 abstract The production of complex bird song is commonly achieved through neuromuscular activity of respiratory,syringeal and craniomandibular systems. According to nonlinear dynamics theory, however, complexity can also emergespontaneously from very simple and deterministic systems, without any external control. Thus far, studies linking bird songcomplexity with nonlinear dynamics are very […]

The expansion velocity of the Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto population in europe.

Collared-Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) Science Article 2 abstract Invasion models have been developed and applied for a long time. As presently existing models have serious drawbacks, another, more general mathematical model of range expansion has been developed. Using information on reproduction, survival, and dispersal at the level of the individual, this model allows the calculation of […]
