Data from: Nutrition during sexual maturation affects competitive ability but not reproductive productivity in burying beetles

Paul E. Hopwood, Allen J. Moore & Nick J. Royle
1. Food availability can be unpredictable. When food becomes more abundant following a period of low food availability, developing larvae or juveniles often allocate resources preferentially towards increasing growth. This has important long-term effects on adult phenotypes and longevity. Despite the importance of strategic resource allocation during early development, few studies have examined how changes in resource availability during other windows of development affect reproductive strategies and fitness independent of growth. 2. We manipulated food...
