Parent–offspring resemblance in colony-specific adult survival of cliff swallows

  title={Parent–offspring resemblance in colony-specific adult survival of cliff swallows},
  author={Charles R Brown and Erin A. Roche and Mary Brown},
  journal={Evolutionary Ecology},
Survival is a key component of fitness. Species that occupy discrete breeding colonies with different characteristics are often exposed to varying costs and benefits associated with group size or environmental conditions, and survival is an integrative net measure of these effects. We investigated the extent to which survival probability of adult (≥1-year old) cliff swallows (Petrochelidon pyrrhonota) occupying different colonies resembled that of their parental cohort and thus whether the… CONTINUE READING
