The maintenance of monogamy in black-billed magpies and tree swallows

  • Author / Creator
    Dunn, Peter O.
  • Doctoral thesis. Examines monogamous mating behaviour in black-billed magpies (Pica pica) and tree swallows (Tachycineta bicolor). Male removal experiments indicated that a need for male parental care was probably a sufficient explanation for monogamy in magpies and an insufficient explanation for monogamy in swallows.
