Data from: The evolution of eggshell cuticle in relation to nesting ecology

Liliana D'Alba, Rafael Maia, Mark E. Hauber & Matthew D. Shawkey
Avian eggs are at risk of microbial infection prior to and during incubation. A large number of defence mechanisms have evolved in response to the severe costs imposed by these infections. The eggshell's cuticle is an important component of antimicrobial defence, and its role in preventing contamination by microorganisms in domestic chickens is well known. Nanometer-scale cuticular spheres that reduce microbial attachment and penetration have recently been identified on eggs of several wild avian species....
