Many factors conspire to prevent or depress reproductive success. An understanding of these factors is important, for they are the forces that shape and control individual survival and success and, ultimately, that of populations and species. Only in the last few years has weather been considered an important factor in the reproductive success of raptors. Most authors attribute this weather-related reproductive failure to inability of population, they found no evidence that wet weather contributed significantly to breeding failure through food shortage.
