Reproductive biology and behaviour

One of the most relevant processes in the life cycle of all living things is reproduction. On this depends the future of organisms as species and, therefore, knowing the phenology of reproduction, its duration, the factors involved, as well as other related aspects, allows us to obtain key information on the biology of the species studied. Likewise, this vital process conditions the survival of the populations. Therefore, this knowledge is essential to manage and conserve the populations of plants and animals.

In the case of many endangered bird species, the breeding period is one of the most critical of their life cycle, since if conditions are not favourable due to the lack of food or human disturbances caused by forestry works or leisure activities, adults may abandon the nest and the chicks. For these reasons, the specific studies on the reproductive biology and behaviour of the Bonelli’s eagle provide us essential information for knowing its biology and ecology.
