Description

Maternal care is very important in many mammalian and bird species. In the case of ducks, maternal care is extremely important as in most scenarios male ducks are absent for a variety of reasons. In this research article, I reviewed four different kinds of ducks and their relative number of offspring and relative offspring size. Additionally, I also look at the type of predators that most commonly attack ducks. I also discuss what kind of habitats, evolution, diets, and more of ducks to further add onto the project.
