Even though I know what random selection, directional selection, stabilizing selection, disruptive selection and sexual selection are I can not understant what does Starlings producing five eggs in each clutch has to do with it.
In my final I got this question and I don't know if I got it right because I had to guess. The question said something like "starlings produce five or six eggs (I don't remember the exact number) in each clutch and I was supposed to say which type of selection (random,directional, etc..) was that. Please tell me why will any of those answers make sense.
describe the evolutionary basis for behavioral ecology. Explain why these adaptations may result in suboptimal behavior.
