Interactions between infant growth and survival: evidence for selection on age-specific body weight in captive common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus).

Abstract

We investigated the influence of age-specific weight, litter size, caging, and the presence of helpers on survival to 6 months of age in 189 Callithrix jacchus infants. Infant survival was analyzed using Cox Proportional Hazards regression, and… (More)
