Resumen1. In birds with bi-parental care, handicapping is often assumed to decrease the amount of parental care of the handicapped partner. We discuss how handicapping could alter the shape of the handicapped bird's survival±e ort curve (theoretical curve relating the survival of a parent to its e ort) and show that the optimal response could yield a decrease, no response or even an increase in e ort of the handicapped bird. 2. Male or female great tits Parus major (L.) were handicapped during the nestling period by clipping a number of feathers in order to study the e ects on parental care and body condition. 3. Handicapped males signi®cantly decreased their feeding rates, while handi- capped females did not. Condition of handicapped females signi®cantly deterio- rated, while condition of handicapped males did not change during the experiment. Females with a handicapped partner fully compensated for their partner's decrease in work rate, while males with a handicapped partner did not show any compensa- tion and even tended to decrease their feeding rates. 4. Using an inverse optimality approach, we reconstructed the theoretical curve relating the survival of a parent to its e ort on the basis of the experimental e ects. The handicapped male's survival±e ort curve appeared to be slightly steeper than that of handicapped females. This suggests that handicapped males su er more from an increase in e ort than handicapped females.
