Habitat geometry does not affect levels of extrapair paternity in an extremely unfaithful fairy-wren

Brouwer, Lyanne; van de Pol, Martijn; Cockburn, Andrew


Density of potential mates has often been proposed to explain the enormous variation in extrapair paternity. However, density is often confounded by other ecological factors that might affect extrapair paternity in their own way. Furthermore, extrapair mating shows strong phylogenetic inertia, making both meaningful intra- and interspecific comparisons difficult. An extreme way to change density is through habitat fragmentation that reduces connectivity between territories. Recently, habitat...[Show more]
