Natural selection on breeding time through postfledgling survival was investigated in a population of blue tits, Parus caeruleus, between 1993 and 1996. In particular, selection acting through large brood sizes among early breeders (fecundity-dependent selection) was separated from selection acting through fitness benefits unrelated to the numerical benefits of large brood sizes (fecundity-independent selection). There was evidence that natural selection favored early breeding in 1993 and 1995… CONTINUE READING
