Asynchronous hatching in a nonavian species: a test of the hurry-up hypothesis
Running title: Hurry-up hypothesis 10 2 The hurry-up hypothesis suggests that completing reproduction as soon as possible is favoured when the quantity or quality of resources used for breeding declines over time. However, completing reproduction sooner may incur a cost if it leads to an asynchronous hatching pattern that reduces overall growth and survival of offspring. Here, we present the first test of the hurry-up hypothesis in a non-avian system, the 15 burying beetle Nicrophorusdoi:10.1093/beheco/arx055 fatcat:awu7dcyxejgcplmft237ea2hvq
