Abstract

 To obtain insights into the relevance of climate and environment for life-history evolution, the following are reviewed: 1) life-history classification derived from r–K selection theory and C–S–R triangle theory, 2) theoretical studies of life-history evolution based on population growth and resource allocation, 3) experimental studies to test life-history theories, and 4) empirical comparison studies between and within species, followed by 5) a brief discussion on how the global climate affects the life-history evolution of plants.
