Data from: Larval density, sex and allocation hierarchy affect life-history trait covariances in a bean beetle

Flavia Barbosa, Samuel Gascoigne & Desire Uwera Nalukwago
Life-history theory aims to understand how different environments result in differential investment in fitness-related traits. While trade-offs between traits are expected, many studies show positive or no correlation between pairs of costly traits. One hypothesis that may explain the inconsistency of trade-offs in the literature is that trait investment may occur in a dichotomous hierarchy (the tree model), that allows for differential trait investment weighted by the traits’ respective positions within the hierarchy. Previous mathematical...
