Optimal choice of neighbour: predator protection among tundra birds / Tore Larsen, Svein Grundetjern.

Title: Optimal choice of neighbour: predator protection among tundra birds / Tore Larsen, Svein Grundetjern.
Author(s): Larsen, Tore.
Grundetjern, Svein.
Date: 1997.
In: Journal of Avian Biology. (1997.), Vol. 28(4) (1997)
Abstract: Distribution of birds on Siberian tundra was studied around nests of long tailed skuas Stercorarius skua, grey plovers Pluvialis squatarola, Pacific golden plovers Pluvialis fulva and bar tailed godwits Limosa lapponica, all of which have been seen attacking avian predators entering their nest territories. Survival of defended nests was significantly higher than that of controls only around grey plover nests. Skuas defended fiercely, but preyed on artificial nests outside their territories and did not attract more neighbours than controls.
