The role of group size and environmental factors on survival in a cooperatively breeding tropical passerine

Brouwer, Lyanne; Richardson, David S.; Eikenaar, Cas; Komdeur, Jan


1. Variation in survival, a major determinant of fitness, may be caused by individual or environmental characteristics. Furthermore, interactions between individuals may influence survival through the negative feedback effects of density dependence. Compared to species in temperate regions, we have little knowledge about population processes and variation in fitness in tropical bird species. 2. To investigate whether variation in survival could be explained by population size or climatic...[Show more]
