Evolutionary conservation advice for despotic populations: Habitat heterogeneity favours conflict and reduces productivity in Seychelles magpie robins

Lopez-Sepulcre, Andres; Kokko, Hanna; Norris, Ken

Description

Individual preferences for good habitat are often thought to have a beneficial stabilizing effect for populations. However, if individuals preferentially compete for better-quality territories, these may become hotspots of conflict.We show that, in an endangered species, this process decreases the productivity of favoured territories to the extent that differences in productivity between territories disappear. Unlike predictions from current demographic theory on site-dependent population...[Show more]
