Summary

In chapter 1, my objective was to describe life history patterns of goldeneyes in relation to other sea duck species, which are typically described as long-lived, with delayed maturity, low and variable annual breeding probability, and invariant adult female survival. I used multistate capture-mark recapture models (Arnason 1972, 1973) in Program MARK (White and Burnham 1999) to estimate multiple demographic parameters, and used several explanatory variables to investigate the effects of climate on breeding and wintering areas, nesting density (as indexed by nest box occupancy), and individual variation (e.g., body condition) on my demographic parameters of interest. I detected substantial annual variation in adult survival. In contrast, [...]
