My suspicion is that, in times of food scarcity, increased lifespan (especially in animals with fairly limited spans) allows for a close-to-normal chance of producing offspring anyway - the starvation periods become "downtime," without offspring, but the reproductive span remains similar. If that's true, longer-lived species like humans would show a reduced effect.
