Data from: Selection and constraints on offspring size-number trade-offs in sand lizards (Lacerta agilis)

Gabriella Ljungström, Martin Stjernstedt, Erik Wapstra & Mats Olsson
The trade-off between offspring size and number is a central component of life-history theory, postulating that larger investment into offspring size inevitably decreases offspring number. This trade-off is generally discussed in terms of genetic, physiological or morphological constraints; however, as among-individual differences can mask individual trade-offs, the underlying mechanisms may be difficult to reveal. In this study, we use multivariate analyses to investigate whether there is a trade-off between offspring size and number in a...
