Folgebruten beim Krokodilwaechter (Pluvianus aegyptius) unter Gehegebedingungen


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