Example text

Animals grow faster and become larger under ecologically favourable conditions than they do when food is in short supply. In most cases, this will be a consequence of such environmental variables as climate and habitat productivity, but the mother's ability to provide enough food for her offspring may also be important considerations, as will be serious setbacks such as illnesses at crucial stages of rapid growth. Because the conditions experienced early in life determine an animal's lifetime growth trajectory (see Graham 1968, Guzman 1968), early experience can radically alter an animal's competitive ability later in life independently of its genetic inheritance.

As the number of animals competing for a given resource increases, so the average expectation of gain for each individual decreases because there is less to go round. If dominance comes into play, some individuals may even be excluded altogether from access to the resource. Frequency-dependent effects of this kind play an important role both in population genetics and in behaviour at the individual level (Ayala and Campbell 1974, Maynard Smith 1982; for an introduction to this area, see Parker 1984).
