Wytham Woods

C.M. Perrins

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the various long-term population studies of birds at Wytham Woods. It looks into studies that address significant issues in field biology, including the evolution and ecology of reproductive parameters such as the timing of breeding in relation to food availability or the number of eggs that a female lays. It enumerates some of the bird species discovered in Wytham, and emphasizes on the tit studies by David Lambert Lack and H. N. Kluijver. It specifically analyses their research on the great and blue tit, and explores their physiology, populations and methods of survival, and their breeding season and patterns.

Keywords:   population studies, birds, Wytham Woods, field biology, tit, David Lamber Lack, H. N. Kluijver
