Data from: Phenotypic plasticity of senescence in Daphnia under predation impact: No ageing acceleration when the perceived risk decreases with age

Barbara Pietrzak, Max Rabus, Maciej Religa, Christian Laforsch & Maciej J. Dańko
Recognizing the nature of the predation risk, and responding to it accurately, is crucial to fitness. Yet, even the most accurate adaptive responses to predation risk usually entail costs, both immediate and lifelong. Rooting in life history theory, we hypothesize that an animal can perceive the nuances of prey size and age selectivity by the predator and modulate its life history accordingly. We test the prediction that – contrary to the faster or earlier senescence...

Biodiversity loss is a major challenge. Over the past century, the average rate of vertebrate extinction has been about 100-fold higher than the estimated background rate and population declines continue to increase globally. Birth and death rates determine the pace of population increase or decline, thus driving the expansion or extinction of a species. Design of species conservation policies hence depends on demographic data (e.g., for extinction risk assessments or estimation of harvesting quotas). However,...
