Demography and parental investment in orange-crowned warblers: testing life history theory
Understanding the diversification of life history strategies is a major goal of evolutionary ecology. Research on avian life history strategies has historically focused on explaining variation in clutch size, and most studies have tested whether this variation can be explained by variation in a single ecological factor, such as food availability or mortality risk. However, relatively few studies have evaluated whether the causes of variation within populations are distinct from or similar to the causes of variation between populations. In my dissertation, I compare the life history strategies ...
