Figure 1

Repeat measurements of telomere length (TL) in barnacle geese. Estimates of TL (in kb, kilobases) from the same individual, sampled in 2006 and 2008, were highly repeatable within individuals (Spearman rank correlation, rs = 0.82, p < 0.001, n = 34). Females (filled circles) and males (open triangles) are depicted separately. The dashed reference line indicates no change in TL, whereas arrows labelled with F (female) and M (male) denote mean values of TL for each sex in that year.
