Trade-offs between offspring size and number in the lizard Lacerta vivipara: a comparison between field and laboratory conditions

Abstract:

Limited resources will inevitably lead to trade-offs between traits. However, trade-offs are not always observed, for a variety of reasons. For example, failure to take into account covariates, and high variation in resource acquisition relative to variation in resource allocation, can obscure the underlying trade-off. In the present paper, the trade-off between offspring size and number was examined in the common lizard Lacerta vivipam. Size-number trade-offs can arise for two different reas...
