Data from: Multiple paternity and number of offspring in mammals

F. Stephen Dobson, Ash Abebe, Hannah Correia, Christian Kasumo, Bertram Zinner & Hannah E. Correia
Many cooperative social attributes are being linked to characteristics of mating systems, particularly to the rate of multiple paternity that typifies a population. Under the logic that greater offspring production by females should engender greater competition among males to mate with females, it is predicted that multiple paternity should increase with litter sizes. We tested the predicted positive association of multiple paternity and litter size with a meta-analysis of 59 species of mammals. The probability...
