Maternal adjustment of parental effort in relation to mate compatibility affects offspring development
Theory predicts that parents should adjust reproductive investment in a current breeding attempt by considering the relative fitness benefits of current and future reproductive attempts. Empirical tests, however, have proved problematic because of the difficulties in isolating variables that yield clear and predictable fitness returns to individuals and because partner compensation in socially monogamous species is likely to confound individual investment strategies. We test the effect of...[Show more]
