We were able to demonstrate that the Allee effect can be the result of a mortality increase affecting floaters (i.e. dispersing individuals able to enter as breeders in the reproductive population when a breeding territory or a potential mate – owner of a suitable breeding territory – becomes available). Previously, potential mechanisms underlying Allee effects were always related to the breeding portion of a population only. In contrast, our understanding of or solutions to population declines due to the Allee effects can reside elsewhere, away from breeding territories.||Description:||7 pages, 2 figures.||Publisher version (URL):||http:/dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolmodel.2007.11.009||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10261/18447||DOI:||10.1016/j.ecolmodel.2007.11.009||ISSN:||0304-3800|
