Summary
Abstract: Age, productivity, and other factors affecting breeding performance of
canvasbacks (Aythya valisineria) are poorly understood. Consequently, we tested
whether reproductive performance of female canvasbacks varied with age and
selected environmental factors in southwestern Manitoba from 1974 to 1980.
Neither clutch size, nest parasitism, nest success, nor the number of
ducklings/brood varied with ... View entire text

(1982). Similar counts of July ponds were not conducted, so annual
changes in wetland numbers were based on May and July pond numbers
derived from the closest transect ... View entire text
