Data from: Paternal care and litter size coevolution in mammals

Paula Stockley & Liane Hobson
Biparental care of offspring occurs in diverse mammalian genera, and is particularly common among species with socially monogamous mating systems. Despite numerous well-documented examples however, the evolutionary causes and consequences of paternal care in mammals are not well understood. Here we investigate the evolution of paternal care in relation to offspring production. Using comparative analyses to test for evidence of evolutionary associations between male care and life history traits, we explore if biparental care is...
