Figure S1 2-year exponential population growth rate (ln(Nt+1/Nt) vs. average 2-year female reproductive success, 1975–2004 (y = −0.1907 + 0.2589x, F1,14 = 6.48, P = 0.026, R2 = 0.35).
Figure S2 Short-term (2-year) adult female density (females km−2).
Figure S3 Short-term (2-year) relative cub productivity.
Figure S4 Short-term (2-year) relative reproductive success.
Figure S5 Linear regression of cub productivity and reproductive success vs. dry season rainfall, averaged across the study area within each 2-year period (cub productivity: n = 19 biennial time-steps, R2 = 0.41, P = 0.003; reproductive success: n = 19 biennial time-steps, R2 = 0.28, P = 0.02).
