Nests, eggs and chicks: reproduction in a changing world

The conference will aim to cover a range of topics relating to the nesting period in the life history of birds, including the following:

  • Interactions between breeders, offspring and siblings, both within and between species;
  • Individual strategies for breeding decisions – having second broods or abstaining;
  • The evolution and function of egg morphology and nest structure;
  • Development and ecophysiology of eggs and young;
  • Costs of reproduction in a changing environment;
  • Links between individual nest outcomes and population dynamics, and the conservation implication.
