Within-pair similarity in migration route and female winter foraging effort predict pair breeding performance in a monogamous seabird

Abstract:

In long-lived monogamous animals, pair bond strength and durability are usually associated with higher fitness. However, whether pairs maximise fitness during the non-breeding season by maintaining contact during the winter, or instead prioritise individual condition, is unclear. Using geolocators recording spatial (light) and behavioural (immersion) data, we tracked pairs of the long-term monogamous Atlantic puffin Fratercula arctica during the non-breeding season, to determine whether and h...
