Social structure, individual fitness and the effect of climate in an obligate cooperatively breeding bird, the white-winged chough (Corcorax melanorhamphos)
During my PhD I examined the social structure of white-winged choughs (Corcorax melanorhamphos), a highly social species of Australian bird, which are obligate cooperative breeders, meaning they must breed in groups to successfully produce offspring, living in groups from three to up to 20 individuals.
