A recent review by T. Amundsen and J. N. Stokland showed that, when food was plentiful, last-hatched nestlings of asynchronously hatched broods died more frequently than their nestmates or nestlings in synchronously hatched broods. They argued that if last-hatched nestlings die as a consequence of hatching asynchrony, then brood reduction must be maladaptive. I construct a model similar to a model by D. M. Temme and E. Charnov. In my model, asynchronously hatched broods experience reduced… Expand
