Resource allocation trade-offs during development are potentially very important in the evolution of organism morphology and life-history strategy However, they have rarely been demonstrated empirically. To what extent the division of limited resources between growing organs is a consequence of particular developmental pathways or varies strategically in line with life-history predictions is unknown. It has been demonstrated in a number of holometabolous insects that altering the resources… CONTINUE READING
