However, the tradeoff is often not detected in taxa with iteroparity and parental care as these factors complicate life history and obscure existing tradeoffs (Gilbert & Manica 2010).
Regarding iteroparity, most population models (both agestructured and stage-structured) focus on cases where nonlinearities (density dependence) are built into the fecundity elements and not into the survivals.
The subclass 0 < [[mu].sub.2] < 1, p [right arrow] 1, is classified as precocious iteroparity and covers several small mammals species, among them small rodent species that start to reproduce at young age and may survive to reproduce for several years.
Under uncertain enPronments, selection should favor iteroparity and the ability to allocate reproductive efforts among multiple reproductive events in order for indiPduals to avoid risk of failed recruitment and preclude cost of current reproduction which can reduce chances of future surPval and reproduction (Murphy, 1968; Steams, 1992; Harshman and Zera, 2007).
