In many animal taxa, parental care is a critical environmental influence on offspring growth and development (Clutton-Brock, 1991). Parents with high energetic investment in parental care influence offspring mass positively (Moreno et al., 1997; Burness et al., 2001). Provisioning offspring with an energy-rich and/or a high quality diet improves growth rate of offspring and reduces duration of developmental phases critical for offspring survival (Watanuki, 1992; Johnston, 1993; Meyer et al… CONTINUE READING
