Folgebruten beim Krokodilwaechter (Pluvianus aegyptius) unter Gehegebedingungen

, : Folgebruten beim Krokodilwaechter (Pluvianus aegyptius) unter Gehegebedingungen. Zoologische Garten 72(4): 222-224

In his study on Egyptian plovers (Pluvianus aegyptius) in Ethiopia, Howell (1979) observed that only pairs that lost eggs early during breeding laid second clutches. Though second broods seemed to be possible in terms of time available. Howell assumed that the prolonged high parental investment makes a second nesting doubtful. Since 1998 a pair of Egyptian plovers successfully reared young in an aviary of the Tropical Bird House of Krefeld Zoo.
