Other display components are discussed: bill-wiping, pecking-at-perch, ritualized preening, leaf-plucking, butterfly dance, sun-bathing, and seed regurgitation. Display of unplumed males is discussed, and a brief summary of calls is given. Evolution of polygyny and evolutionary relationships within the genus Paradisaea are discussed"--P. [1]. en_US. Abstract. Our goal is to elucidate the selective pressures that account for the origin and maintenance of conspicuous and distinctive coloration (hereafter referred to collectively as colorfulness) in ideas are relevant to the study of other animals as by:   To help understand the evolution of disparity in courtship form within the birds of paradise, the present study examines the genus Parotia in a comparative framework. The goal is to explore patterns of similarity (and dissimilarity) within a relatively complete sample of male display components previously described (Scholes, , a).Cited by: ICZN OPINION (Case ) Paradisaea Linnaeus, and PARADISAEIDAE Swainson, (Aves): names conserved.

  The birds-of-paradise (Paradisaeidae) form one of the most prominent avian examples of sexual selection and show a complex biogeographical distribution. The family has accordingly been used as a case-study in several significant evolutionary and biogeographical syntheses. As a robust phylogeny of the birds-of-paradise has been lacking, these hypotheses have been tentative and difficult to by: čeština: rajka velká dansk: Stor Paradisfugl Deutsch: Göttervogel, Großer Paradiesvogel English: Greater Bird-of-paradise español: Ave del paraíso mayor, ave del paraíso esmeralda grande eesti: suur-paradiisilind euskara: Paradisaea apoda suomi: isoparatiisilintu français: Paradisier grand-émeraude magyar: nagy paradicsommadár Bahasa Indonesia: Cenderawasih Kuning-besar.

Paradisaea definition is - the type genus of the family Paradisaeidae including various birds of paradise whose males are frequently predominantly brilliant metallic green.
