Daniel Levitis is an Assistant Proffessor at the University of Southern Denmark. His work in evolutionary demography focuses on finding broadly applicable explanations for broadly occurring mortality patterns. In addition to post-fertile life span, this includes efforts to explain why mortality is so high at the beginning of life across such a broad range of species, environments, causes of death, and life-histories.
