    Although estrous synchrony has been reported in a number of mammalian species, most often among primates, methodological and analytical problems make it difficult to interpret these results. We developed a novel estrous synchrony index and employed a randomization procedure to analyze long-term...

    The article focuses on the effect of breeding synchrony in extra-pair fertilization (EPF) in birds. It mentions that breeding synchrony allows females to evaluate and select extra-pair mates more correctly, since synchrony tends to regulate the connection of male displays. It further mentions...

    The article discusses the role of breeding synchrony in mating birds and extra-pair fertilization (EPF) frequency. It mentions that the experimental or observational evidences available indicates that there exists a positive relationship between synchrony and EPF frequency. It further mentions...

    As applied to polygynous mammals, the socioecological model assumes that environmental risks and resources determine the spatial and temporal distribution of females, which then sets male strategies for monopolizing fertile matings. The effects of female spatial distribution (i.e., female...

    To see whether there is a difference in temporal resolution of synchrony perception between audio–visual (AV), visuo–tactile (VT), and audio–tactile (AT) combinations, we compared synchrony–asynchrony discrimination thresholds of human participants. Visual and...

    The effects of breeding synchrony and density on levels of extrapair paternity in birds are controversial. We used multilocus DNA fingerprinting and microsatellite analysis to examine the effects of breeding synchrony and density on levels of extrapair paternity in the common yellowthroat ...

    One of the most important aspects in a seed orchard is the synchrony among the clones for reproductive phenology. This will decide the extent of random mating among the constituent clones and hence the genetic gain in the resultant progeny. In the present study, synchrony among clones for...

  • Breeding synchrony and extra-pair mating in red-winged blackbirds Weatherhead, P. J. // Behavioral Ecology & Sociobiology;Mar1997, Vol. 40 Issue 3, p151 

    Using data from a 6-year paternity study of red-winged blackbirds, Itested the hypotheses that increased nesting synchrony should eitherpromote extra-pair mating by increasing the advantage of extra-pairmating to females, or decrease extra-pair mating by constraining malesfrom seeking extra-pair...

    Patient-ventilator synchrony and patient comfort are assumed to go hand in hand, yet few studies provide support for this common sense idea. In reality, synchrony between the patient and ventilator is complex and can be affected by the ventilator settings, type of ventilator, patient-ventilator...
