Variation in maternal behaviour can have profound consequences on offspring phenotype, survival, reproductive success, as well as maternal fitness. Understanding the mechanisms that underlie variation in maternal care can provide us with a more thorough understanding of the evolution of parental care. In some taxa, the effects of steroid hormones such as testosterone on paternal care have been well studied. However, patterns of female androgens in natural populations are rarely documented and… CONTINUE READING
