- Size-fecundity relationships, growth trajectories, and the temperature-size rule for ectothermsJeffrey D Arendt
Department of Biology, University of California at Riverside, Riverside, California 92521 6000, USA
Evolution 65:43-51. 2011..The greater increase in fecundity offsets costs of delayed maturation in cold environments, favoring a larger size at maturation. This can explain many cases of crossing growth trajectories, not just in relation to temperature...
- Evolution of juvenile growth rates in female guppies (Poecilia reticulata): predator regime or resource level?Jeffrey D Arendt
Deptartment of Biology, University of California at Riverside, Riverside, CA 92521, USA
Proc Biol Sci 272:333-7. 2005..The weight of the evidence suggests that resource availability plays a more important role than predation in shaping the evolution of growth rates...
