A population ecology concept is r/k selection theory, one of the first predictive models in ecology used to explain life-history evolution the premise behind the r/k selection model is that natural selection pressures change according to population density. Department of entomology and nematology, college of agricultural and environmental sciences center for population biology. Life history strategies are chosen by individuals as to maximize life-time reproductive success this will be achieved by optimal trade-offs eg how much effort should be invested in reproduction vs survival or is it better to produce many small or a few large offspring.

Life history patterns reveal a population's allotment of available energy and resources and explain a population's relationship between fecundity, survival, relative offspring size, and age at reproductive maturity. The human life history is characterized by several unusual features, including large babies, late puberty and menopause, and the fact that there is a strong cultural influence on reproductive decisions throughout life.

The life history of an organism is its pattern of survival and reproduction, along with the traits that directly affect survival and the timing or amount of reproduction rates of survival and reproduction can be estimated across age classes, or across different stages in organisms with complex life.
