Data from: Sex-specific telomere length and dynamics in relation to age and reproductive success in Cory’s Shearwaters

Christina Bauch, Marie Claire Gatt, José Pedro Granadeiro, Simon Verhulst & Paulo Catry
Individuals in free-living animal populations generally differ substantially in reproductive success, lifespan and other fitness-related traits and the molecular mechanisms underlying this variation are poorly understood. Telomere length and dynamics are candidate traits explaining this variation, as long telomeres predict a higher survival probability and telomere loss has been shown to reflect experienced “life stress”. However, telomere dynamics among very long-lived species are unresolved. Additionally, it is generally not well understood how telomeres relate with...
