Long-term and large-scale analyses of nest predation patterns in Australian songbirds and a global comparison of nest predation rates

Remes, Vladimir; Matysiokova, Beata; Cockburn, Andrew


Juvenile mortality is one of crucial drivers of life-history evolution, and predation is the main cause of nest loss in birds. Thus, understanding how nest predation and failure vary in nature is important for understanding life history evolution and, moreover, for effective conservation. We used published data and unpublished records to study factors influencing nest predation and total failure in 138 populations of 90 species of Australian songbirds. Daily predation (average 2.0% d-1) and...[Show more]
