Our results demonstrate that maternal effects and phenotypic plasticity can play a significant role...

... offspring size variation. We found that the effects of egg size on offspring performance were variable across life-history stages and depended on the thermal environment that offspring experienced. We also found evidence for anticipatory maternal effects ( Marshall and Uller, 2007 ): mothers adjusted...

We suggest that oviduct function is a significant contributor to the physiological costs of egg production and might mediate individual variation in maternal effects associated with non-yolk components of egg quality (e.g. immunoglobulins,lysozyme). * Author for correspondence (e-mail: tdwillia...
