Data from: Differential responses to related hosts by nesting and non-nesting parasites in a brood-parasitic duck

Kim Jaatinen, Markus Öst, Philip Gienapp & Juha Merilä
Host-parasite relatedness may facilitate the evolution of conspecific brood parasitism (CBP), but empirical support for this contention remains inconclusive. One reason for this disparity may relate to the diversity of parasitic tactics, a key distinguishing feature being whether the parasite has a nest of her own. Previous work suggests that parasites without nests of their own may be of inferior phenotypic quality, but due to difficulties in identifying these parasitic individuals, little is known about...
