Here we show that interspecific variation in demographic stochasticity, caused by random variation among individuals in their fitness contributions, can be predicted from a knowledge of the species' position along a "slow-fast" gradient of life-history variation, ranging from high reproductive species with short life expectancy at one end to species that often produce a single offspring but survive well at the other end of the continuum. The demographic stochasticity decreased with adult survival rate, age at maturity, and generation time or the position of the species toward the slow end of the slow-fast life-history gradient. This relationship between life-history characteristics and demographic stochasticity was related to interspecific differences in the variation among females in recruitment as well as to differences in the individual variation in survival. Because reproductive decisions in birds are often subject to strong natural selection, our results provide strong evidence for adaptive modifications of reproductive investment through life-history evolution of the influence of stochastic variation on avian population dynamics.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Møller, Anders Pape</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lambrechts, Marcel M.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Weimerskirch, Henri</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Sæther, Bernt-Erik</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Visser, Marcel E.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Matthysen, Erik</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Matthysen, Erik</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/51411"/> <dcterms:issued>2004-12</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Møller, Anders Pape</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lambrechts, Marcel M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
