Cumulative reproduction and survival costs in female red deer

Abstract:

Successful reproduction in a single breeding event has consistently been shown to reduce condition, fecundity and survival to the following breeding season. Few studies have examined the cumulative costs of frequent reproduction on survival. Here we use a dataset of female red deer (Cervus elaphus) from the Isle of Rum, Scotland, to model survival probability within a mark-recapture framework. By including both recent reproduction and long-term cumulative reproductive effort in the models we ...
