Natal and breeding dispersal have a major impact on gene flow and population structure. We examined the consequences of natal dispersal on the reproductive success (proportion of pairs rearing chicks) of colonial-breeding Thick-billed murres (Uria lomvia). Reproductive success increased with distance dispersed for the first and second breeding attempt. The increase in breeding success leveled off at natal dispersal distances above 7 m. Our results were consistent with the idea that the… CONTINUE READING
