The relative impacts of nest predation and brood parasitism on seasonal fecundity in songbirds



The relative impacts of nest predation and brood parasitism on seasonal fecundity in songbirds



Conservation Biology 13(1): 57



The relative impacts of nest predation and brood parasitism on the seasonal fecundity of songbirds were investigated. Nest predation had a larger impact on seasonal fecundity over a larger range of parameter space than did brood parasitism, particularly when the loss of broods due to parasitism was low. Songbird populations that experienced probabilities of nest predation typical of fragmented landscapes were unlikely to be self-sustaining. The alleviation of nest predation by frequent renesting or double brooding might not be sufficient to establish populations that are self-sustaining.
