For passerine birds breeding in the Arctic, paternal effort in parental care is necessary for successful breeding. Behavioural strategies, such as mate guarding, to ensure paternity should therefore also be common in this environment. In order to investigate the relation between such behaviour and breeding success, when controlling for the effect of(More)
Reproductive processes are affected by local and regional climate variation. Birds breeding in the Arctic may experience strong energetic constraints, which will affect their reproductive output. Recent research has emphasized the importance of extra-pair copulation as a means of improving reproductive output. In this paper, we explore ecological and(More)
Global climate change is regarded as one of the major threats to biodiversity. Both local and regional climate parameters can have strong effects on ecological processes affecting the survival and reproduction of plants and animals. High Arctic ecosystems are characterized by low species diversity and the local species have often evolved specific(More)
