Empirical data supporting this prediction have remained elusive in the bird literature. To test fitness related benefits of migration, we studied a partial migratory population of European blackbirds (Turdus merula) over 7 years. Using a combination of capture-mark-recapture and radio telemetry, we compared survival probabilities between migrants and residents estimated by multi-event survival models, showing that migrant blackbirds had 16% higher probability to survive the winter compared to residents. A subsequent modelling exercise revealed that residents should have 61.25% higher breeding success than migrants, to outweigh the survival costs of residency. Our results support theoretical models that migration should confer survival benefits to evolve, and thus provide empirical evidence to understand the evolution and maintenance of migration.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Fudickar, Adam Michael</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Migration confers winter survival benefits in a partially migratory songbird</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Schmidt, Andreas</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Wikelski, Martin</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Kokko, Hanna</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Partecke, Jesko</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Naef-Daenzer, Beat</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-01-25T12:59:20Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Partecke, Jesko</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2017-11-21</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Zúñiga, Daniel</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Fudickar, Adam Michael</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Naef-Daenzer, Beat</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Schmidt, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Gager, Yann</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Kokko, Hanna</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/41161"/> <dc:creator>Zúñiga, Daniel</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/41161/1/Zuniga_2-ron5088evcl86.pdf"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/41161/1/Zuniga_2-ron5088evcl86.pdf"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-01-25T12:59:20Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Gager, Yann</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
