Lifetime reproductive success, measured by the number of offspring surviving to age five, varied from 0 to 10 in a group of 33 provisioned female Japanese macaques. Of the three contributors to reproductive success, the number of reproductive years, fecundity per year and survivorship of offspring to reproductive age, the first accounted for two-thirds of the variation. Fecundity per year and survivorship were negatively correlated, indicating reproductive costs of reducing interbirth interval… 
Estimating reproductive success of primates and other animals with long and incompletely known reproductive life spans

A procedure is described that provides a standard estimate of lifetime reproductive success from either complete or incomplete reproductive life spans, and can be used for both sexes, any litter (clutch) size, any mating system, any mean length of interbirth interval, any age criterion of reproductive success, and any study length.
Life history costs and consequences of rapid reproductive maturation in female rhesus macaques
The fitness consequences of rapid reproductive maturation depend upon longevity, with age at death having a significantly greater impact on lifetime reproductive success than age at first parturition.
Heterogeneity of reproductive aging in free-ranging female rhesus macaques.
It is argued that a sudden catastrophic loss of fertility by a minority of females each year is most consistent with data, and this outcome is consistent with the evolutionary theory of aging.
Lifetime reproductive success, longevity, and reproductive life history of female yellow baboons (Papio cynocephalus) of Mikumi National Park, Tanzania
The relationship between longevity and lifetime reproductive success (LRS) was studied in free‐ranging female baboons of Mikumi National Park, Tanzania. A severe population decline occurred between
The effects of dominance rank and group size on female lifetime reproductive success in wild long-tailed macaques,Macaca fascicularis
The effects of rank and group size on birth rate, offspring survival, age of first reproduction for daughters, and length of reproductive career, while not each consistently statistically significant, added up to substantial effects on estimated lifetime reproductive success.
Age-related and individual differences of reproductive success in male and female barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus)
Age-related and individual differences in longterm reproductive success were analyzed in two social groups of free-ranging Barbary macaques and variation of male reproductive success significantly exceeded that of females in both study groups.
Reproductive strategies of rhesus macaques
A common denominator to the reproductive strategies of both female and male rhesus macaques is that feeding patterns affect body condition which influences reproductive output and regulates relative reproductive success.
Age as a determinant of reproductive success among captive female rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta).
It is demonstrated that maternal age contributes significantly to a decline in fertility and older females can live relatively long periods following birth of their last infant.
Lifetime reproductive success of female mountain gorillas.
Results for LRS were similar to another standard fitness measurement, the individually estimated finite rate of increase (λ(ind), but λ(ind) showed diminishing benefits for greater longevity, while females with higher LRS had significantly longer adult lifespans and higher dominance ranks.
Female reproductive success in a species with an age-inversed hierarchy.
Compared to a provisioned population of a closely related species, the wild and unprovisioned population examined showed stronger age effects, while (ii) female reproductive success was equally affected by rank, which was rather similar to those for stable hierarchies of other mammals, particularly several nonhuman primates.
