Age-related trends in the breeding success of individual female Sparrowhawks Accipiter nisus
Author(s): Newton I. & Rothery P.
Abstract: Overall, female Sparrowhawks improved in the mean number of young they raised per year up to the 5th year of life, and then declined. An attempt is made to find to what extent this mean trend is caused by similar trends in the breeding of individual ..[more]..
