Urbanization shapes the relation between density and melanin-based colouration in bird communities

Neyla Turak, Alice Monnier-Corbel, Mélanie Gouret & Adrien Frantz
Growing urbanization increasingly influences ecosystems worldwide. While the effects of urban conditions within species (through either plastic or evolutionary responses) have been widely studied, their potential influences among species (through environmental filter), especially concerning their colouration, remain poorly known. Here, we investigated whether avian communities breeding inside and outside a major European city (Paris) differ with regards to melanin-based plumage colouration. Melanins are heritable pigments present in many taxa and have a series of unique...
