Groenewoud F, Kingma SA, Hammers M, et al. Subordinate females in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler obtain direct benefits by joining unrelated groups. J Anim Ecol. 2018;00:1–13.

We test a suite of hypothesized immediate (early-life body mass, telomere length, and survival) and delayed (adult reproductive potential and lifespan) costs of sibling rivalry for offspring of differing competitive ability in Seychelles warblers, where most offspring are raised singly and hence competitor success can be compared to a competition-free scenario. Compared to those raised alone, all competing nestlings had lower body mass and weaker competitors experienced reduced survival. However, the stronger competitors appeared to have longer adult breeding tenures and lifespan than
those raised alone.
