Under conditions of large-scale destruction of nests by terrestrial predators, the nesting season in Emberiza schoeniclus is markedly extended, and reproductive parameters show distinct seasonal variation, which apparently accounts for qualitative heterogeneity of the progeny. Taking into account that the life span of the birds is short and the safety of nests increases during the season, the ability of Reed Buntings to lay replacement clutches of eggs should be supported by natural selection.
