on survival rates in the tropics. Snow (1962a) found that male White-bearded Manakins (Manacus manacus) in Trinidad had an annual survival rate of at least 89%. This was based on a group of established adult males holding courts at a lek, which were followed over a 3-year period. An indirect estimate for the Golden-headed Manakin (Pipra erythrocephala), another lek-forming species, based on the proportions of males, females, and young birds in a trapped population, gave a similar figure (Snow… Expand
