Data from: Growth and reproduction trade-offs can estimate previous reproductive history in alpine ungulates

Benjamin Larue, Sandra Hamel, Steeve D. Côté, Fanie Pelletier & Marco Festa-Bianchet
1. Life-history theory predicts energy allocation trade-offs between traits when resources are limited. If females reduce allocation to growth when they reproduce, annual growth could reveal past reproductive effort, which would be useful to assess population dynamics and harvest sustainability. The potential and accuracy of growth measures for predicting reproductive success have rarely been evaluated with individuals with known reproductive history. 2. We used long-term monitoring of annual growth and reproduction of marked female bighorn...
