Abstract

The life history of a species is determined by trade-offs between growth, survival and reproduction to maximize fitness in a given environment. Following a theoretical model, we investigate whether the composition of marine fish communities can be understood in terms of a set of lifehistory strategies and whether the prevalence of the strategies follows specific spatial patterns
that can be related to the environment
