The diet and disease susceptibility of grey partridges Perdix perdix on arable farmland in East Anglia, England

Grey Partridge (Perdix perdix) Science Article 3 abstract A three-year field-based study of 85 radio-tagged female wild grey partridges Perdix perdix was undertaken during 200 -2003 in East Anglia, England, to investigate possible links between chick diet and parasite-induced disease.

Finnish native grey partridge (Perdix perdix) population differs clearly in mitochondrial DNA from the farm stock used for releases.

Grey Partridge (Perdix perdix) Science Article 1 abstract The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region I (CR1) of 138 wild and 36 captive grey partridges (Perdix perdix) was sequenced. Representing two major mitochondrial DNA lineages that differed by 15 nucleotide substitutions (3.7%), the Finnish lineage dominated in the wild, whereas the European lineage dominated in the […]

Grey partridge Perdix perdix population status in central northern France: spatial variability in density and 1994-2004 trend
