Evolutionary analysis of life span, competition, and adaptive radiation, motivated by the Pacific rockfishes (Sebastes).

Abstract:

The Pacific rockfishes (Sebastes spp) are remarkable for both their diversity (on the order of 100 species) and range of maximum life span ( approximately 10 years for Calico rockfish to approximately 200 years for Rougheye rockfish). We describe the natural history and patterns of diversity and life span in these species and then use independent contrasts to explore correlates of these. When phylogenetic history is taken into account, maximum life span is explained by age at maturity, size a...
