Data from: Parental genetic similarity and offspring performance in blue tits in relation to brood size manipulation

Aneta Arct, Szymon Drobniak, Samantha Mellinger, Lars Gustafsson & Mariusz Cichon
In birds, as in many other taxa, the level of genetic similarity between parents is an important source of variation in offspring fitness. The majority of avian studies which explore the influence of mates’ genetic similarity on offspring viability have focused on hatching success as a viability measure. Yet, viability benefits may extend into later life stages, including the nestling period and beyond. Here, we analysed data from free-living blue tits (Cyanistes caeruleus) across three...
