Evolution of Avian Cooperative Breeding: Comparative Tests of the Nest Predation Hypothesis.

Abstract

Comparative analyses carried out on two different phylogenies of cooperatively and noncooperatively breeding Australian passerine birds (parvorder Corvida) were unable to detect a significant difference in nest predation rates after controlling for body mass and risk of predation due to location of the nest (nest safety).
