The role of maternal effects on offspring performance in familiar and novel environments
Vrtilek, Milan; Chuard, Pierre J.C.; Iglesias-Carrasco, Maider; Jennions, MIchael D; Head, Megan
Maternal effects are an important evolutionary force that may either facilitate adaptation to a new environment or buffer against unfavourable conditions. The degree of variation in traits expressed by siblings from different mothers is often sensitive to environmental conditions. This could generate a Maternal-by-Environment interaction (M × E) that inflates estimates of Genotype-by-Environment effects (G × E). We aimed to test for environment-specific maternal effects (M × E) using a paternal...[Show more]
