    Nature 392:807-11. 1998
    ..But elderly females do not suffer increased mortality costs of reproduction, nor do post-reproductive females enhance the fitness of grandchildren or older children. Instead, reproductive cessation appears to result from senescence...

    C Packer
    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota, St Paul 55108, USA
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 355:1627-35. 2000
    ..Our findings suggest that mammalian sex ratios might be the product of more complex processes than is generally recognized or that sex-determining mechanisms impose sufficient constraints to prevent adaptive variation in all contexts...

    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota, St Paul, MN 55108, USA
    Science 293:690-3. 2001
    ..Consequently, female relationships are highly symmetrical, and female lions are "free agents" who only contribute to communal care when they have cubs of their own...

    ..Their statistical analyses consider, first, only a subset of fenced reserves and, second, an incomplete examination of 'costs per lion.' Our original conclusions remain unaltered. ..
