Data from: Energetic constraint of non-monotonic mass change during offspring growth: a general hypothesis and application of a new tool

Jennifer M. Arnold, Ian C. Nisbet & Stephen A. Oswald
1. Postnatal growth is an important life-history trait and can be a sensitive indicator of ecological stress. For over 50 years, monotonic (never-decreasing) growth has been viewed as the predominant trajectory of postnatal mass change in most animal species, notably among birds. However, prevailing analytical approaches and energetic constraints may limit detection of non-monotonic (or multi-phasic), determinate growth patterns, such as mass recession in birds (weight-loss prior to fledging, preceded by overshooting adult mass), which...
