Variation in size and reproduction in Trinidadian guppies: ecological and evolutionary causes and effects

Abstract:

Body size and reproductive rates are key characteristics of any organism. Size and reproduction are strongly influenced by environmental conditions, but individuals also influences their environment. The resulting feedback loop can generate ecological and evolutionary dynamics. In this thesis, I explore the causes and consequences of intraspecific variation in size and reproduction. Trinidadian guppies (Poecilia reticulata) are an ideal system for this purpose. Natural populations of guppies ...
