These plants do not reduce infestation by nest ectoparasites, but have been shown to improve growth and condition of chicks at fledging.

There were 3 data points in baseline CORT models identified as outliers and removed. In the box outside of Biology, the adults have been busy all week bringing in soft material to line the nest. They also limit the increase in cultivable bacterial density related to ectoparasite infestation of nestlings GLMs were also used to investigate whether maternal UV signal predicted lay date, clutch size, and number of chicks fledged.
