Linking range wide energetic trade-offs to breeding performance in a long-distance migrant

Camilo Carneiro, Tómas Gunnarsson, Veronica Méndez, Amadeu Soares & Jose Alves
Understanding how individual trade-offs and carry-over effects along the annual cycle influence fitness is fundamental to unravel population dynamics, but such data is particularly challenging to collect in long-distance migrants. Here, with a full annual cycle perspective of Icelandic whimbrels Numenius phaeopus islandicus, we investigate trade-offs across the entire distribution, assessing migration costs and wintering energetic balance experienced throughout the wintering range (from temperate to tropical regions), and link these to breeding parameters for two...
