COSTS of reproduction occur when an increase in reproductive rate reduces future reproduction by increasing mortality or reducing fertility. Such costs have been demonstrated in plants and animals in laboratory and field studies1–5. Their importance lies in their possible role in the evolution of life histories and of senescence6–15. An understanding of their mechanisms will also reveal the nature of the physiological constraints on longevity and fertility. Most accounts assume that these occur… Expand
