|Summary of thesis||
My PhD project focus on the study of the evolution of cooperative breeding in birds. I am interested in determining which factors are driving the shift from family group living to cooperative breeding. I will examine the role of life-history and ecology in the evolution of the postponement of personal reproduction and helping behaviours within a family living system.
