      Background: Climate change potentially has important effects on distribution, abundance, transmission and virulence of parasites in wild populations of animals. Methodology/Principal Finding: Here we analyzed paired ...
    • Disappearance of eggs from non-parasitized nests of brood parasite hosts – the evolutionary equilibrium hypothesis revisited 

      Stokke, Bård Gunnar; Røskaft, Eivin; Moksnes, Arne; Møller, Anders Pape; Antonov, Anton Tinchov; Fossøy, Frode; Liang, Wei; Lopez-Iborra, German; Moskát, Csaba; Shykoff, Jacqui A.; Soler, Manuel; Vikan, Johan Reinert; Yang, Canchao; Takasu, Fugo (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The evolutionary equilibrium hypothesis was proposed to explain variation in egg rejection rates among individual hosts (intra- and interspecific) of avian brood parasites. Hosts may sometimes mistakenly reject own eggs ...
    • Geographic variation in egg ejection rate by great tits across 2 continents 

      Liang, Wei; Møller, Anders Pape; Stokke, Bård Gunnar; Yang, Canchao; Kovařík, Petr; Wang, Haitao; Yao, Cheng-Te; Ding, Ping; Lu, Xin; Moksnes, Arne; Røskaft, Eivin; Grim, Tomas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Hosts of brood parasites may vary geographically in their ability to resist parasitism. In contrast, geographic variation in defenses, such as egg rejection, is not expected to be present or vary geographically in unsuitable ...
    • Modelling the maintenance of egg polymorphism in avian brood parasites and their hosts 

      Liang, Wei; Yang, Canchao; Stokke, Bård Gunnar; Antonov, Anton Tinchov; Fossøy, Frode; Vikan, Johan Reinert; Moksnes, Arne; Røskaft, Eivin; Shykoff, Jacqui A.; Møller, Anders Pape; Takasu, Fugo (Journal article, 2012)
      In avian brood parasitism, egg phenotype plays a key role for both host and parasite reproduction. Several parrotbill species of the genus Paradoxornis are parasitized by the common cuckoo Cuculus canorus, and clear ...
    • Plaintive cuckoos do not select tailorbird hosts that match the phenotypes of their own eggs 

      Yang, Canchao; Huang, Qiuli; Wang, Longwu; Jiang, Aiwu; Stokke, Bård Gunnar; Fossøy, Frode; Tunheim, Odd Helge; Røskaft, Eivin; Liang, Wei; Møller, Anders Pape (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Laying a mimetic egg is important for a brood parasite to succeed in defeating the defenses of a host that can recognize and reject nonmimetic foreign eggs. Several recent studies suggest that common cuckoos ( Cuculus ...
