  • Each line shows the Pearson correlation value (r) between the two indicated life-history traits. P values are shown in parentheses. Values in bold indicate the data depicted in Figure 3. WT, wild type; RS, reproductive span; MS, body movement span; PS, pharyngeal pumping span; LS, life span; brood, total number of live progeny.

  • a WT hermaphrodites were self-fertile (unmated) or mated to WT, lov-1(sy582), or fer-6(hc6) males.
