Experimental evidence for density-dependent reproduction in a cooperatively breeding passerine

Brouwer, Lyanne; Tinbergen, Joost M.; Both, Christiaan; Bristol, Rachel; David S, Richardson; Komdeur, Jan


Temporal variation in survival, fecundity, and dispersal rates is associated with density-dependent and density-independent processes. Stable natural populations are expected to be regulated by density-dependent factors. However, detecting this by investigating natural variation in density is difficult because density-dependent and independent factors affecting population dynamics may covary. Therefore, experiments are needed to assess the density dependence of demographic rates. In this study,...[Show more]
