Data from: Better stay together: pair bond duration increases individual fitness independent of age-related variation

Oscar Sánchez-Macouzet, Cristina Rodríguez & Hugh Drummond
Prolonged pair bonds have the potential to improve reproductive performance of socially monogamous animals by increasing pair familiarity and enhancing coordination and cooperation between pair members. However, this has proved very difficult to test robustly because of important confounds such as age and reproductive experience.
