--We used multilocus minisatellite DNA fingerprinting to estimate the frequency of extrapair fertilizations in a population of Leach's Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma leucorhoa) on Kent Island, New Brunswick, Canada. Leach's Storm-Petrel is a member of Procellariiformes, an order of long-lived pelagic birds characterized by long-term pairbonds, single-egg clutches, and extended periods of parental care. We found no evidence of extrapair fertilizations in 48 families (42 full families and 6 partial… CONTINUE READING
