- Components of variance underlying fitness in a natural population of the great tit Parus majorR H McCleery
Department of Zoology, Edward Grey Institute, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3PS, United Kingdom
Am Nat 164:E62-72. 2004..This is the third study using directly measured fitness in a wild population to show the important role of residual variation in determining the pattern of lower heritabilities for traits more closely related to fitness...
- Inbreeding depression along a life-history continuum in the great titM Szulkin
Edward Grey Institute of Field Ornithology, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
J Evol Biol 20:1531-43. 2007..Our data show that inbreeding depression acts independently at each life-history stage in this population, and hence suggest that estimates of the fitness costs of inbreeding must focus on the entire life cycle...
- Age-specific reproduction in a long-lived species: the combined effects of senescence and individual qualityR H McCleery
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS, UK
Proc Biol Sci 275:963-70. 2008..Our results underline the need to take individual differences into account when testing hypotheses about life histories in wild populations...
