Life-history phenotypes in populations of Brachyrhaphis episcopi (Poeciliidae) with different predator communities

Jennions, Michael; Telford, S


Variation among populations in extrinsic mortality schedules selects for different patterns of investment in key life-history traits. We compared life-history phenotypes among 12 populations of the live-bearing fish Brachyrhaphis episcopi. Five populations co-occurred with predatory fish large enough to prey upon adults, while the other seven populations lacked these predators. At sites with large predatory fish, both sexes reached maturity at a smaller size. Females of small to average length...[Show more]
