Behavioural adaptations to breeding in a long-lived pelagic seabird

Abstract:

The traits of organisms evolve by natural selection to maximise fitness; however, we do not observe Darwinian Demons. This is because all organisms face various types of constraint, which ultimately limit fitness. Reproduction is inextricably linked with fitness, and constraints on reproduction have extensive implications for evolution and adaptation.

Two broad types of constraints on breeding are treated here. Firstly, breeding may be constrained by life-history trade-offs, perhap...
