Abstract:

This chapter considers methods used to study the physiology and genetics of birds. It describes methods for obtaining samples of blood and tissue from wild birds, experimentation, anaesthesia, administration of substances to birds, implants, and laparatomy. The legal and ethical considerations involved in the use of invasive and experimental methods are discussed in detail. The uses of materials gathered from such techniques in studies of ecotoxicology, endocrinology, energetics, and molecular genetics are described.
