Basic sexual features, these constructions and approaches at once concerned about copy, are one of the most assorted, really good, and weird within the animal country. in addition, reproductive characteristics are usually species-specific, suggesting that they developed very swiftly. This variety, lengthy the province of taxonomists, has lately attracted broader curiosity from evolutionary biologists, particularly these attracted to sexual choice and the evolution of reproductive thoughts.

Little is known about life history tradeoffs or the importance of male care in tropical birds (Chapter 3). But, all the models predict that a high frequency of EPFs will select for reduced male parental care, which in turn will reinforce sex role divergence. , Greenberg and Gradwohl 1983). In many species, like the Dusky Antbird, females and males have almost identical roles in territory defense and parental care. Even though males cannot lay eggs, they might make up for this gender disparity by extensive courtship feeding (Skutch 1996).
28 BEHAVIORAL ECOLOGY OF TROPICAL BIRDS A powerful test is to compare survival in a genus that occurs in both temperate and tropical regions (unlike manakins, antbirds and Hawaiian honeycreepers). 56) species. 3; Cody 1966, Skutch 1985, Kulesza 1990). The prevailing clutch size is 2 eggs for tropical passerines of the humid neotropics, larger for hole-nesters (Skutch 1985). Within taxonomic groups, clutch size increases two to three fold from the tropics to high northern latitudes where clutches of 4-6 eggs are common (Cody 1966, Klomp 1970).
Climate in south temperate regions, like southern South America and Australia, is not nearly as seasonal as it is in north temperate regions because land masses are concentrated at latitudes closer to the equator. Consequently, breeding seasons are long and most passerines are year-round residents (Rowley and Russell 1991). These similarities with the tropics mean that hypotheses for the evolution of life history traits in the tropics can also be tested in south temperate regions, if these hypotheses truly offer general explanations.
