ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effect of breeding synchrony in extra-pair fertilization (EPF) in birds. It mentions that breeding synchrony allows females to evaluate and select extra-pair mates more correctly, since synchrony tends to regulate the connection of male displays. It further mentions that the current available evidence does not prove the relation between breeding synchrony and EPF.
