Compensatory growth where animals compensate for time stress or transient nutritional or thermal stress by accelerating their growth rate is widespread. We know, however, relatively little about the evolution and ecological correlates of compensatory growth. For this we need studies on congeneric species with known phylogenetic relationships that also focus on the associated largely understudied costs. Here we tested for compensatory growth and associated costs in response to time stress… CONTINUE READING
