Reproductive senescence in female Soay sheep: Variation across traits and contributions of individual ageing and selective disappearance

Hayward, Adam D.; Wilson, Alastair J.; Pilkington, Jill G.; Clutton-Brock, Tim H; Pemberton, Josephine M; Kruuk, Loeske


Although senescence in reproductive success has been observed in a number of wild animal populations, longitudinal analyses determining the actual processes responsible for population-level patterns of ageing, and in particular, the relative contributions of within-individual senescence vs. selective mortality, are rare. Furthermore, many studies also only consider single traits in isolation, despite evidence that different aspects of physiology and fitness may show varying patterns of...[Show more]
