Data from: Risk of predation on offspring reduces parental provisioning, but not flight performance or survival across early life stages

James Mouton, Bret Tobalske, Natalie Wright & Thomas E. Martin
Developmental responses can help young animals reduce predation risk but can also yield costs to performance and survival in subsequent life stages with major implications for lifetime fitness. Compensatory mechanisms may evolve to offset such costs, but evidence from natural systems is largely lacking. In songbirds, increased nest predation risk should favour reduced provisioning, but also young that fledge (leave their nest) at an earlier age. Both responses can result in fledglings with shorter wings,...
