Cover Page Model

It clearly helps to work on an amazingly beautiful species when it comes to getting a cover page photo for a study, and once again a journal has chosen to use a picture of the Gouldian finch to grace the cover. Here is the August cover of the Journal of Experimental Biology with a great photo supplied by Mark Chappell, one of the co-authors of our new paper. The paper, led by Bill Buttemer demonstrates that although the red and blackheads morphs have some quite different behavioural strategies there is no difference in their basal and maximal metabolic rates.
