Inter-related age-dependent patterns of ecology and behaviour in a population of Silvereyes
The silvereye population on one of the Bunker Islands, Lady Elliot Island, is known to have colonized only within the past two decades.
Thus, it was possible to undertake a preliminary pedigree analysis of inheritance of silvereye minisatellite loci and to assess the usefulness of DNA fingerprints in quantifying genetic relatedness between randomly selected individuals.
Researchers heard the greatest change in the speed at which songbirds such as silvereyes
vocalise each word.
talking to the verdigrised silvereyes and the wrens superb;
and the silvereyes have returned to the velvetted quinces.
Other scientists had found that migratory species such as Australian silvereyes
and European robins become disoriented under red light, losing their normal vectors.
