On the study of population ecology of village weaver (Ploceus cucullatus (Muller)) in the Guinean Republic

On the study of population ecology of village weaver (Ploceus cucullatus (Muller)) in the Guinean Republic

Byulleten' Moskovskogo Obshchestva Ispytatelei Prirody Otdel Biologicheskii, 944: 34-41

The research was conducted in the Guinean Republic in the years of 1984-1986. The breeding season of the village weaver is shown to be prolonged and variable through the years: from the end of July (first eggs laying) to the end of November (last nestlings leaving the nests). The village weaver colonies adjusted to the oil palms were found to be 1.9 times as frequent as casually distributed ones p < 0.01. Within 130 nests examined the laying numbers averaged 1.86 .+-. 0.03 eggs per one nest and brood numbers - 1.28 .+-. 0.13 nestlings per nest. Each of the brooded females produces virtually one young bird per one breeding season. The results of motorized register (1224 km) indicated in average 14.4-19.9 village weaver colonies per each 10 km of the route in Lower and Middle Guinea, and 3,4 colonies-in Upper Guinea.
