Contributors discuss the phylogenetic and environmental factors which influence and constrain the evolution of life history. The nature of fundamental trade-offs which operate between the allocation of resources to different reproductive functions and somatic maintenance are explored. An analysis of these conflicts is also used to shed light on the evolution of senescence. Finally, life histories are compared for different species using phylogenies.
