Extended Data Fig. 1

PC1 explains 72.2% of variation in our data (axes 1, 2, and 3), representing body length (mm), minimum age at first reproduction (months), and lifespan (months), respectively. PC2 explains 24.9% of variation in our data (axis 4), representing fertility (# of young per year). Colored ellipses represent 95% probability that data for each taxonomic classification fall within the ellipse.
