The possibility of functional relationships between energetics and life-history characteristics has been of considerable interest to evolutionary ecologists. Among species of mammals, life-history variables generally are not correlated with mass-independent basal metabolic rate, with the possible exceptions of maximal intrinsic rate of increase, litter size and reproductive effort during lactation. Whether this is generally true at the level of variation among individuals within a population… CONTINUE READING
