Tree swallow pair similarity dataset
datasetposted on 2021-02-24, 03:18 authored by Jessica Hernandez
For this project, we studied the cloacal bacterial communities of a socially monogamous yet genetically polygynous songbird, the tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor), in eastern North America. We address two questions: (1) do the cloacal bacterial communities differ between female and male tree swallows within a population? And (2) do pair-bonded social partners exhibit more similar cloacal bacterial communities than expected by chance?
