The proceedings of the symposium, Avian Energetics (Paynter ), played a critical role in stimulating interest and research in the field of avian energetics. Some twenty-odd years later, we are making another attempt to summarize the information in the field of avian energetics.

A symposium held in chaired and organized by William R. Dawson was the first major attempt to summarize and synthesize the existing information in the then emerging field of avian energetics.

Birds invest a large amount of energy flying, migrating, in parental care, and in reproducing. Leading researchers describe energy use. Molt undoubtedly requires a wide array of adjustments in the physiology, energetics, and nutrition of birds. What is known about these adjustments is the focus of this chapter.

Avian Energetics and Nutritional Ecology pp Cite as. The nutrition of animals involves procurement of food, digestion and absorption of component nutrients, metabolism and or assimilation of absorbed nutrients, and elimination of resulting waste products.

Determining what constitutes adequate nutrition for free-living animals poses a challenge/ Susan E. Orosz, PhD, DVM, Dipl ABVP (Avian), ECAMS. Introduction. Veterinarians are commonly asked questions relating to avian nutrition and make clinical judgments regarding nutrition in avian patients with various disease states.

However, nutrition is often only touched upon in the veterinary curriculum and rarely are avian species discussed.

This book presents, uniquely, all aspects of our current knowledge, drawn from such diverse disciplines as physiological ecology, poultry production, zoo biology and biomedical science.

Sturkie's Avian Physiology is the classic comprehensive single volume on the physiology of domestic as well as wild birds.

The Sixth Edition is thoroughly revised and updated, and features several new chapters with entirely new content on such topics as migration, genomics and epigenetics.

Avian Review is for bird book enthusiasts. It shows, by region, various books that are current, antique, or simply unique. Sampel pages are provided to help the reader to determine if the book may be of interest to purchase. A brief summary or a longer review will ultimately be provided for each book.

Abstract. The flexible phenotypes of birds and mammals often appear to represent adjustments to alleviate some energetic bottleneck or another.

By increasing the size of the organs involved in digestion and assimilation of nutrients (gut and liver), an individual bird can increase its ability to process nutrients, for example to quickly store fuel for onward by: Development of the airways and vasculature in the lungs of birds.
