Questions: Given costs and trade-offs, can selection be consistent or strong in animal populations? Is selection on body size and arrival timing, and opportunities for selection, related to indicators of breeding competition (breeding density and sex ratio)? Methods: Our data set consisted of genetic, phenotypic, and demographic data taken from adults of a small wild population of steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). We measured the lifetime reproductive success of adults by matching breeding… CONTINUE READING
