Group breeding in vertebrates: linking individual- and population-level approaches

Safran, Rebecca J.; Doerr, Veronica; Sherman, Paul W.; Doerr, Erik; Flaxman, Samuel M.; Winkler, David W.


Background: Why individuals breed in groups and why patterns of group breeding are so variable are long-standing questions in evolutionary ecology. Researchers have tended to study either population-level patterns such as breeding group size or else the decisions that individuals make when joining groups, but have rarely explicitly linked the two, using knowledge of individual decisions to predict larger-scale population patterns. Aim: We describe an integrated method designed to categorize and...[Show more]
