      Hey guys,

      Got another question 😀

      What can you tell me about the evolution of life histories? <– If my professor is going to ask me this question during my oral exam, I really don´t have a clue what to answer.

      If there is someone with an idea or suggestion I´d be happy to read it 🙂

      Many thanks,

      Bernd90

      What’s supposed to be life histories?

      what are the advantages of each? for example, look up "r-selected organisms" and "k-selected organisms." Each of these have distinct trade offs involving energy and success of passing on genes.

      I feel the purpose of life histories is the "want" and "desire" to live and establish in each individual…thats the only thing which resulted in "today"
      hope you get what i said 🙂

      Hey guys,

      Thanks for your advice. Particularly mentioning r- and k- strategists was a good point I believe 🙂

      However, what I actually wanted to find out about is whether there is a list of evolutionary stages that shows how different life histories came about.

      I hope you know what I mean. Please feel free to write whatever you find helpful regarding my problem.

      Thanks again 😉
