...., 2019 ). For example, maternal hormone allocation can promote the development of phenotypic traits that reduce offspring exposure or susceptibility to predators ( Schwabl et al., 2007 ). Such hormone-mediated maternal effects may be especially important for offspring survival early in life before...
