Especially in avian taxa our understanding of the ecology and function of these bacteria remains incomplete. The involvement of skin bacteria in intra-specific communication has recently received attention, and has highlighted the need to understand what information is potentially being encoded in bacterial communities. Using next generation sequencing techniques, we characterised the skin microbiome of wild zebra finches, aiming to understand the impact of sex, age and group composition on skin bacteria communities. For this purpose, we sampled skin swabs from both sexes and two age classes (adults and nestlings) of 12 different zebra finch families and analysed the bacterial communities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Engel, Kathrin</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Family matters : Skin microbiome reflects the social group and spatial proximity in wild zebra finches</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Pankoke, Helga</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Brandl, Hanja B.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Griffith, Simon C.</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/51289"/> <dc:creator>Pankoke, Helga</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kalinowski, Jörn</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Griffith, Simon C.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Sauer, Jan</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Engel, Kathrin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-09T12:49:17Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Caspers, Barbara A.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Sauer, Jan</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Brandl, Hanja B.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Caspers, Barbara A.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Jünemann, Sebastian</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-09T12:49:17Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Kalinowski, Jörn</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
