This study provides the first comprehensive quantification of age-specific (co)variances in reproductive success achieved through different routes in a wild population. The authors demonstrate substantial variation in the contributions of such (co)variances to the total variance in lifetime reproductive success, and that extra-pair reproduction can alter the (co)variance structure of age-specific life-histories.
