Infectious diseases, reproductive effort and the cost of reproduction in birds.

Abstract:

Reproductive effort can have profound effects on subsequent performance. Field experiments on the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis) have demonstrated a number of trade-offs between life-history traits at different ages. The mechanism by which reproductive effort is mediated into future reproductive performance remains obscure. Anti-parasite adaptation such as cell-mediated immunity may probably also be costly. Hence the possibility exists of a trade-off between reproductive effort and...
