Rhesus macaques compensate for reproductive delay following ecological adversity early in life

Logan Luevano, Chris Sutherland, Stephanie J Gonzalez & Raisa Hernández-Pacheco
Adversity early in life can shape the reproductive potential of individuals through negative effects on health and life span. However, long-lived populations with multiple reproductive events may present alternative life history strategies to optimize reproductive schedules and compensate for shorter life spans. Here, we quantify the effects of major hurricanes and density dependence as sources of early-life ecological adversity on Cayo Santiago rhesus macaque female reproduction and decompose their effects onto the mean age-specific fertility,...
