We studied patterns of parentage in 85 broods (332 cygnets) of black swans during three breeding seasons, using a set of eight polymorphic microsatellite markers. We detected both intraspecific brood parasitism (IBP; < 5% of cygnets per year) and extra‐pair paternity (EPP). In these years, 10–17% (mean = 15.1%) of cygnets resulted from EPP, and 27–40% (mean 37.6%) of broods contained at least one extra‐pair cygnet. Compared with levels of EPP in closely related species with similar life… Expand
