A central issue in life history theory is how organisms trade off current and future reproduction. A variety of organisms exhibit intermittent breeding, meaning sexually mature adults will skip breeding opportunities between reproduction attempts.

We have developed a matrix population model for intermittent breeding, and use adaptive dynamics to determine under...[Show more]
