I am studying fitness benefits and heritability of long-term partnerships.
In socially monogamous species, pair-bonds may persist over multiple breeding seasons, which can have important fitness consequences. Therefore, partnerships are of fundamental evolutionary importance, yet studies predominantly focus on the benefits of extra-pair copulations, making the framework of life-history evolution with regard to partnerships incomplete. I am exploring why some partnerships are maintained whereas others are not using the socially monogamous Seychelles warbler as a model system.
