Abstract

There was no evidence that female Agelaius phoeniceus in the studied NW Pennsylvania population are limiting their own breeding densities either passively or aggressively. The absence of passive limitation and of any negative density dependence in reproductive success weighs against the acceptance of the polygyny threshold model for this species. -from Author
