English Trade-offs between reproduction and life span are ubiquitous, but little is known about their underlying mechanisms. Here we combine treatment with the juvenile hormone analog (JHa) methoprene and experimental evolution in <i>Drosophila melanogaster</i> to study the potential role of juvenile hormone (JH) in mediating such trade-offs at both the physiological and evolutionary level.
