Relationship between age at first parturition, offspring and 10-year old recruits (a), effect of senescent mothers on the reproductive lifespans and interbirth intervals of their daughters (b, c), and the simulated relationship between age at maturity and recruits produced for animals who haven't reached senescence (d). Open circles and light grey bars represent females whose mothers are alive. Females whose mothers' survival status changed over their reproductive lifespan were not included in panel (b). Solid vertical lines represent standard errors, complete sample sizes in Tables 12.
