Avian Incubation is the first scientific review of A factors affecting incubation in avian nests. These range from nest construction and egg characteristics to patterns of embryonic development. An extensive section describes the incubation behaviour of parents and embryos, while other chapters review brood patch physiology and the factors determining the incubation environment, including nest microbiology. The final section considers the ecological, energetic, and fitness costs of incubation. Written by authorities in their respective fields from around the world, this book provides a comprehensive review of this critical aspect of avian reproduction. Much of the data included bas not been previously published, and so Avian Incubation is not only an extensive reference text but is also a valuable contribution to our basic understanding of incubation.

Kentish plover eggs are incubated for 20–25 days by both sexes; females mostly incubate during the day whilst males incubate during the night. Female Kentish plovers usually lose mass during the day, which is unexpected since they get relieved by the males for a variable amount of time. The loss would be much higher if the females were to Unusual incubation behavior and embryonic …

Parental care can greatly influence reproductive success and the quantity and quality of reared young (Clutton-Brock 1991).Yet, parents inevitably face trade-offs in terms of how much energy to allocate to their developing young versus their own condition and longevity (Martin, 1987, Clutton-Brock, 1991, Martin, 2002, Royle et al., 2004).Species differ in their parental care strategies for
