Reliability of body fat indices for northern bobwhite populations



Reliability of body fat indices for northern bobwhite populations



Journal of Wildlife Management 52(1): 150-152



We evaluated the reliability of indices for predicting whole body fat levels of northern bobwhites (Colinus virginianus) in southern Texas [USA]. Mean percent wing fat did not reflect mean percent body fat within populations. During winter mean percent gizzard fat of adults was correlated (r = 0.79, P < 0.0001, n = 25) with whole body fat and can be used to compare differences in body fat among populations.
