An additional important contribution of this study is the suggestion that seasonal decline in clutch size in this snow goose population is consistent with individual optimization hypotheses proposed by Drent
Goebel developed a variety of different presses that efficiently serve customers across a wide variety of different markets.

1992), to produce and incubate a clutch (e.g., Haftorn and Reinertsen 1985, Moreno and Carlson 1989), and to feed the young (e.g., Drent
and Daan 1980).
Competition between early and late fledglings may have played a role in the disappearance of late fledglings (Kluyver 1971), because age and prior occupancy are important predictors of dominance (Drent
1983, Sandell and Smith 1991).
Furthermore, egg mass varies with developmental state of the egg (Drent
1970, Rahn and Ar 1974), and it was not feasible to measure most eggs when newly laid.

and Daan (1980) emphasized the importance of body condition as a predictor of breeding success in birds and postulated that the amount of reserves at the onset of breeding (i.e., the "capital"), shaped by environmental conditions, will act on the rate of energy expenditure devoted to breeding.
Poor feeding conditions at this time may either force females to postpone egg-laying until their body condition and rate of food intake reach a critical threshold necessary for production of viable eggs (Perrins 1970, Drent
and Daan 1980), or they may indicate insufficient food during later energetically critical phases of the breeding cycle, e.g., incubation or feeding of young (Nilsson 1994).
