Individuals’ expected genetic contributions to future generations, reproductive value, and short‐term metrics of fitness in free‐living song sparrows (Melospiza melodia)

Abstract Appropriately defining and enumerating “fitness” is fundamental to explaining and predicting evolutionary dynamics. Yet, general theoretical concepts of fitness are often hard to translate into quantities that can be measured in wild populations experiencing complex environmental, demograph...
