The study of life history evolution has traditionally focused on animals (Stearns
1992, Roff 2002). This is due to historical factors, such as the fact that the
pioneers in the field happened to be zoologists, and probably also due to
logistics, such as the fact that vegetative reproduction in plants makes “
individuals” harder to identify and that modular growth complicates the
measurement of life history traits (Vourisalo and Muitkainen 1999). Whatever the
reason, the study of life history ...
