Record #144032:

Absence of haematozoa in passerines from a Norwegian archipelago / Ian R.K. Stewart, Thor H. Ringsby, Erling J. Solberg.

Title: Absence of haematozoa in passerines from a Norwegian archipelago / Ian R.K. Stewart, Thor H. Ringsby, Erling J. Solberg.
Author(s): Stewart, Ian R. K.
Ringsby, Thor H.
Solberg, Erling J.
Date: 1997.
In: Ornis Fennica. (1997.), Vol. 74(4) (1997)
Abstract: Authors attempted to test hypothesis that sexual selection is based on female choice for secondary sexual characteristics that reveal health or otherwise of male. Theory assumes interspecific positive correlation between plumage brightness and prevalence of haematozoans. Authors investigated house sparrow (Passer domesticus) on coast of northern Norway. No Haematozoa were found, despite their presence in previous studies and plenitude of vectors - mites, fleas and flat flies (Hippoboscidae).
