The absence of sex-biased dispersal in the cooperatively breeding grey-crowned babbler
Cooperatively breeding birds are thought to be especially vulnerable to habitat fragmentation, in part because dispersal is typically restricted for one sex, increasing the likelihood of inbreeding. Knowledge of dispersal is essential to conservation efforts, but is often hampered by our inability to measure its frequency and distance when dispersal is infrequent and difficult to observe. Disrupted dispersal is a purported cause of decline in the Australian grey-crowned babbler (Pomatostomus...[Show more]
