Variance of lifetime reproductive success is not a well-defined parameter; it is a function of the way a life cycle is defined. Therefore, comparisons of such variance across studies and taxa will only be valid if the life cycles employed are complete (i.e., an entire generation), precisely defined (e.g., egg to egg or adult to adult), and identical. Given a well-defined life cycle, we present methods for obtaining estimates of the variance of lifetime reproductive success among individuals… CONTINUE READING
