Bergmann's rule and Allen's rule in two passerine birds in China

【摘要】:Background:Animals that live at higher latitudes/elevations would have a larger body size(Bergmann's rule) and a smaller appendage size(Allen's rule) for thermoregulatory reasons.According to the heat conservation hypothesis,large body size and small appendage size help animals retain heat in the cold,while small body size and large appendage size help them dissipate heat in the warm.For animals living in seasonal climates,the need for conserving heat in the winter may tradeoff with the need for dissipating heat in the summer.In this study,we tested Bergmann's rule and Allen's rule in two widely-distributed passerine birds,the Oriental Magpie(Pica serica) and the Oriental Tit(Parus minor),across geographic and climatic gradients in China.Methods:We measured body size(body mass and wing length) and appendage size(bill length and tarsus length)of 165 Oriental Magpie and 410 Oriental Tit individuals collected from Chinese mainland.We used linear mixed-effect models to assess variation patterns of body size and appendage size along geographic and climatic gradients.Results:Oriental Magpies have a larger appendage size and Oriental Tits have a smaller body size in warmer environments.Appendage size in Oriental Magpies and body size in Oriental Tits of both sexes were more closely related to the climates in winter than in summer.Minimum temperature of coldest month is the most important factor related to bill length and tarsus length of male Oriental Magpies,and wing length of male and female Oriental Tits.Bill length and tarsus length in female Oriental Magpies were related to the annual mean temperature and mean temperature of coldest quarter,respectively.Conclusions:In this study,Oriental Magpies and Oriental Tits followed Allen's rule and Bergmann'rule respectively.Temperatures in the winter,rather than temperatures in the summer,drove morphological measurements in Oriental Magpies and Oriental Tits in Chinese mainland,demonstrating that the morphological measurements reflect selection for heat conservation rather than for heat dissipation.
