, he was neither ‘localist’, nor ‘cosmopolitan’. 3 Notwithstanding the merits of Ferguson’s conceptualisations, this life history suggests that it is difficult to fit the intricacies of individual daily lives into smooth narratives of social change. Life histories aptly illustrate the dialectics

, various ecological reasons have been proposed for genome size variation (Alfsnes et al., 2017). For instance, genome size is negatively correlated with ambient temperature (Xia, 1995; Liedtke et al., 2018). Life-history theory states that low ambient temperature leads to prolonged life-history traits

Introduction Life history theory predicts that a high risk of extrinsic adult mortality selects for fast growth, early maturation, high investment in reproduction and short lifespans, whereas high adult survival probabilities favour slow growth rates, delayed maturation, low reproduction
