Lifetime reproductive success (LRS), the number of offspring an individual contributes to the next generation, is of fundamental importance in ecology and evolutionary biology. LRS may be influenced by environmental, maternal and additive genetic factors, and the relative contributions of each are critical in determining whether species can adapt to rapid environmental change. However, studies quantifying LRS across multiple generations in wild populations are extremely rare, and to date, non-existent for marine species. Here we use pedigrees of up to 5 generations resolved from a 10-year data-set for a wild orange clownfish population from Kimbe Island (PNG) to...
