We measured the ability of male dusky warblers Phylloscopus fuscatus to maintain a high sound amplitude during singing, which probably reflects an individual s physiological limitations. This new measure of singing performance was correlated with male longevity and with extra-pair paternity, indicating that females who copulated with better singers obtained good genes for their offspring. Our findings are consistent with the idea that females assess male quality by subtle differences in their performance during the production of notes, rather than by the quantity or versatility of song. In addition, observations on territorial conflicts indicate that attractive males invest less in competition over territories because they can reproduce via extra-pair paternity.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Leisler, Bernd</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Leisler, Bernd</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Proceedings of the Royal Society of London / B, Vol. 269 (2002), Number 1499, pp. 1479-1485</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:title>A novel song parameter correlates with extra-pair paternity and reflects male longevity</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
