The effects of breeding synchrony and density on levels of extrapair paternity in birds are controversial. We used multilocus DNA fingerprinting and microsatellite analysis to examine the effects of breeding synchrony and density on levels of extrapair paternity in the common yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas). As in many Neotropical migrants, breeding synchrony was greatest at the beginning of the breeding season. Levels of extrapair paternity were higher after the peak in synchrony, leading to… CONTINUE READING
