Evidence that birds sleep in mid-flight.

Many birds fly non-stop for days or longer, but do they sleep in flight and if so, how? It is commonly assumed that flying birds maintain environmenta...

Epidemiological evidence that garden birds are a source of human salmonellosis in England and Wales.
The importance of wild bird populations as a reservoir of zoonotic pathogens is well established. Salmonellosis is a frequently diagnosed infectious cause of mortality of garden birds in England and Wales, predominantly caused by Salmonella enterica

Sleep and memory in mammals, birds and invertebrates.
Sleep supports memory consolidation. Based on studies in mammals, sleep-dependent consolidation has been conceptualized as 'active system consolidation'. During waking, information is encoded into an initial store (hippocampus). During subsequent sle

Physiological evidence that anthropogenic woodlots can substitute for native riparian woodlands as stopover habitat for migrant birds.
The ability to find sufficient high-quality stopover habitat is a crucial factor for successful migration for woodland migrant birds. Woodland habitats are scarce in the Northern Prairie region of North America, and natural woodlands have been greatl

Eocene fossil is earliest evidence of flower-visiting by birds.
Birds are important pollinators, but the evolutionary history of ornithophily (bird pollination) is poorly known. Here, we report a skeleton of the avian taxon Pumiliornis from the middle Eocene of Messel in Germany with preserved stomach contents co

An evidence-based safe sleep teaching program.
This column describes the experience of the units practice council in developing an evidence-based practice teaching program focused on safe sleep for newborn infants.

Sleep architecture parameters that predict postoperative resolution of nocturnal enuresis in children with obstructive sleep apnea.
We performed a prospective cohort study in a pediatric tertiary care center to determine whether preoperative sleep architecture is associated with complete resolution of nocturnal enuresis (NE) after adenotonsillectomy.

First evidence of independent pseudogenization of toll-like receptor 5 in passerine birds.
Toll-like receptor 5 (TLR5) is a Pattern-recognition receptor responsible for microbial flagellin detection in vertebrates and, hence, recognition of potentially pathogenic bacteria. Herein, we report emergence of TLR5 pseudogene in several phylogene
