Data for: Adaptive seasonal shift towards investment in fewer, larger offspring: Evidence from field and laboratory studies
1. Seasonal changes in reproduction have been described for many taxa. As reproductive seasons progress, females often shift from greater energetic investment in many small offspring towards investing less total energy ...
Seasonal Shifts in Reproduction Depend on Prey Availability for an Income Breeder
The evolution of reproductive strategies depends on local environmental conditions. When environments are seasonal, selection favors individuals that align changes in key reproductive traits with seasonal shifts in habitat ...
Thermal spikes from the urban heat island increase mortality and alter physiology of lizard embryos
Effects of global change (i.e. urbanization, climate change) on adult organisms are readily used to predict the persistence of populations. However, effects on embryo survival and patterns of development are less studied, ...
