Title IncubationTiming&HatchingSynchrony
Downloaded 9 times
Description Hatching rates of king rail nests in relation to Julian first egg date. Over five years at Mackay Island NWR, hatching rates are reported as the number of days during which the eggs hatched and the number of eggs hatched per day. The day of initiation of incubation in relation to first egg date is reported in cases where known.
