Abstract

Studies detailing how energy reserves change over the course of the breeding season can give us valuable insights into environmental and physiological factors affecting the life-history strategies of birds. Here, we bring together a reference collection of studies that have measured reproductive mass changes in 132 species. We discuss how data collection, recording and reporting can be refined to offer a detailed insight into the evolution of avian reproductive strategies.
