The adaptive significance of maternal effects.
Recently, the adaptive significance of maternal effects has been increasingly recognized. No longer are maternal effects relegated as simple `troublesome sources of environmental resemblance' thatExpand

Evolutionary ecology of progeny size in arthropods.
Most models of optimal progeny size assume that there is a trade-off between progeny size and number, and that progeny fitness increases with increasing investment per young. We find that bothExpand

Sex differences in phenotypic plasticity affect variation in sexual size dimorphism in insects: from physiology to evolution.
Males and females of nearly all animals differ in their body size, a phenomenon called sexual size dimorphism (SSD). The degree and direction of SSD vary considerably among taxa, including amongExpand

Multiple mating, lifetime fecundity and female mortality of the bruchid beetle, Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
Females of most insect species mate frequently. Many hypotheses have been proposed to account for the evolution of multiple mating in female insects. In this paper, I test the hypothesis that femalesExpand

Inbreeding–environment interactions occur when inbreeding leads to differential fitness loss in different environments. Inbred individuals are often more sensitive to environmental stress than areExpand

MATERNAL EFFECTS ON OFFSPRING SIZE: VARIATION THROUGH EARLY DEVELOPMENT OF CHINOOK SALMON
We performed two breeding experiments with chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) to explore maternal effects on offspring size. We estimated the magnitude of maternal effects as the differencesExpand

Evolution on ecological time‐scales
Summary 1Ecologically significant evolutionary change, occurring over tens of generations or fewer, is now widely documented in nature. These findings counter the long-standing assumption thatExpand

The effect of Wolbachia-induced cytoplasmic incompatibility on host population size in natural and manipulated systems
Obligate, intracellular bacteria of the genus Wolbachia often behave as reproductive parasites by manipulating host reproduction to enhance their vertical transmission. One of these reproductiveExpand

Maternal age influences offspring quality of many species of insects. This observed maternal age influence on offspring performance may be mediated through maternal age effects on egg size, which inExpand

Rapid Evolution of Egg Size in Captive Salmon
Captive breeding and release programs, widely used to supplement populations of declining species, minimize juvenile mortality to achieve rapid population growth. However, raising animals in benignExpand
