Data from: Early reproductive investment, senescence and lifetime reproductive success in female Asian elephants

Adam D. Hayward, Khyne U. Mar, Mirkka Lahdenperä & Virpi Lummaa
The evolutionary theory of senescence posits that as the probability of extrinsic mortality increases with age, selection should favour early-life over late-life reproduction. Studies on natural vertebrate populations show early reproduction may impair later-life performance, but the consequences for lifetime fitness have rarely been determined, and little is known of whether similar patterns apply to mammals which typically live for several decades. We used a longitudinal dataset on Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) to investigate associations...
