Phenotypic plasticity in squid reproductive traits has been identified in a small number of recent studies. Factors affecting repro-somatic investment seem to be tightly linked to ambient environmental conditions, thus variability in the reproductive strategy of squid are expected, depending on their life-span and distribution. Phenotypic variation in squid has largely been ignored, although the consequences for life-histories are considerable, as they influence squid biology from… CONTINUE READING
