Demography and Populations

There is no information related to topics such age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation. Introduced parasites, such as the botfly (Philornis downsi), which now occurs on all islands where the martin is known to breed, are suspected of contributing to past population declines (BirdLife International 2010).
