    Elevated temperatures drive fine-scale patterns of habitat use in a savanna bird community

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Many animals use thermally buffered microhabitats, e.g. patches of shade within trees, to avoid temperature extremes. These ‘thermal refugia’ may mediate the impact of climate change on animals. Predicting how species and communities will respond to rising temperatures therefore requires...

    The energetic significance of communal roosting and insulated roost nests in a small arid-zone passerine<xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0000"/>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Small endotherms have evolved behavioural mechanisms for reducing rest-phase energy expenditure, which reduce the likelihood of mismatches between energy supply and demand during periods of cold weather and/or food scarcity. Although the energetic consequences of communal roosting and the use...
