Mate switching and copulation behaviour in king penguins / Olof Olsson, Jonas Bonnedahl, Per Anker-Nilssen.

Title: Mate switching and copulation behaviour in king penguins / Olof Olsson, Jonas Bonnedahl, Per Anker-Nilssen.
Author(s): Olsson, Olof.
Bonnedahl, Jonas.
Anker-Nilssen, Per.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Avian Biology. (2001.), Vol. 32(2) (2001)
Abstract: Describes copulation behaviour of king penguins and investigates potential for extra-pair paternity (EPP) and sperm competition through mate switching or extra-pair copulations (EPC), based on study of colony at Husvick, South Georgia, from 1991-96. No EPCs were observed due to very efficient mate guarding, but 38% of birds switched mates at least once before establishing bonds with breeding partner. Higher rate of copulation with pair mate suggests that males try to protect paternity by sperm competition. Proposes safe place hypothesis to explain early copulation peak in king penguins.
