Product Details

As new paperback. This monograph explains why this blackbird is polygynous, and describes the effects of this mating system on other aspects of the biology of the species. The authors show that females choose to mate polygynously because there is little cost to sharing male parental care in the species, and also because females guard against nest predation by nesting near other females. Since this species is one of the best studied in terms of its behavior and ecology, this study is based on an extensive body of work.
