Title
Mitochondrial Control-Region Sequences in Two Shorebird Species, the Turnstone and the Dunlin, and Their Utility in Population Genetic Studies
Author(s): Paul W. Wenink, F Allan J. Baker, and Marcel G. J. Tilanus
Abstract: Because of its rapid rate of sequence evolution, al most strictly maternal mode of inheritance, and lack of recombination, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is the molecule of choice both for studies of intraspecific sequence divergence (Wilson et al. 1985; ..[more]..

The Ruddy Turnstone, Arenaria interpres interpres, a New Definitive Host for Gynaecotyla squatarolae (Digenea: Microphallidae)
Author(s): Min Seo et al
Abstract: The ruddy turnstone, Arenaria interpres interpres, a migratory Korean bird, was proved to be a natural definitive host for Gynaecotyla squatarolae (Digenea: Microphallidae). The ruddy turnstone was found dead at the seashore of Okgueup, Gunsan-si, ..[more]..

Author(s): DOUGLAS B. MCNAIR
Abstract: Ruddy Turnstones (Arenaria interpres) may be highly aggressive toward other species of shorebirds, including the Short-billed Dowitcher (Limnodromus griseus) (Burger et al. 1979), but agonistic behavior of turnstones toward dowitchers at specific fo..[more]..
