Cross‐generational effects refer to nongenetic influences of the parental phenotype or environment on offspring phenotypes. Such effects are commonly observed, but their adaptive significance is largely unresolved. We examined cross‐generational effects of parental temperature on offspring fitness (estimated via a serial‐transfer assay) at different temperatures in a laboratory population of Drosophila melanogaster. Parents were reared at 18°C, 25°C, or 29°C (Tpar) and then their offspring were… Expand

Topics from this paper

Maternal effects influence temperature-dependent offspring survival in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Survition from egg to adult was higher when the maternal and offspring environments matched, showing maternal effects affecting a trait that is a close proxy for fitness, mostly through offspring phenotypic plasticity and maternal effects only had a small contribution. Expand
Context dependence of transgenerational plasticity: the influence of parental temperature depends on offspring environment and sex.
TLDR
It is found that transgenerational plasticity was highly context dependent, and longer parental thermoregulatory opportunities led to increased growth in offspring, providing a clear fitness benefit to daughters but inducing a cost of increased oxidative stress in sons. Expand
Reproductive fitness of Drosophila is maximised by optimal developmental temperature
TLDR
The results show that flies from both populations raised at an intermediate developmental temperature have comparable or higher early fecundity and fertility at all tested adulthood temperatures, while lower (17°C) or higher developmental temperatures did not entail any advantage under the tested thermal regimes. Expand
Cross‐generational effects of temperature on flight performance, and associated life‐history traits in an insect
TLDR
A pronounced benefit of low parental temperature on offspring performance, as well as between‐ and within‐generation effects of acclimation to low temperature, are demonstrated. Expand
Parental thermal environment alters offspring sex ratio and fitness in an oviparous lizard

TLDR
The interactive effects of treatment on offspring sex and growth are consistent with adaptive explanations for the existence of temperature-dependent sex determination in this species, and the greater performance recorded in short bask offspring may represent an anticipatory parental effect to aid offspring in predicted conditions of restricted thermal opportunity. Expand
Thermal parental effects on offspring behaviour and their fitness consequences
TLDR
The findings suggest that thermal parental effects influence variation in animal behaviours relevant for subsequent fitness outcomes, and boldness among long-bask sons in an antipredator context may be linked to their greater rates of growth posthatching. Expand
Within- and between-generation effects of temperature on life-history traits in a butterfly
TLDR
Investigating effects of parental, developmental and acclimation temperature on life-history traits in the butterfly Bicyclus anynana finds between-generation temperature effects on larval time, pupal time, larval growth rate and egg size were qualitatively very similar to effects of developmental temperature, and additionally affected pupal mass but not egg number. Expand
Cross-generation effects due to cold exposure in Drosophila serrata
TLDR
The effects of parental and grandparental exposure to a non-lethal cold shock are considered in Drosophila serrata Malloch and environmental variation experienced in preceding generations can influence progeny phenotype in a manner that is complex and difficult to predict. Expand
Thermal plasticity due to parental and early-life environments in the jacky dragon (Amphibolurus muricatus).

  • 2018
TLDR
The results indicate that thermal environments experienced by lizards can have both transgenerational and within-generation impacts on thermal traits, thus influencing how populations respond to fluctuating or changing climates. Expand
The effect of maternal and grandmaternal age in benign and high temperature environments
TLDR
Both the maternal and grandmaternal age was found to influence all the traits and Senescence in older mothers leads to a reduction in offspring fitness, whereas, plastic responses lead to more competitive and stress resistant offspring from older mothers. Expand

WITHIN‐ AND BETWEEN‐GENERATION EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE ON THE MORPHOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER
TLDR
The existence of significant within‐ and between‐generation effects suggests that comparative studies need to standardize thermal environments for at least two generations, that attempts to estimate “field” heritabilities may be unreliable for some traits, and that predictions of short‐term evolutionary responses to selection will be difficult. Expand
Within- and between-generation effects of temperature on early fecundity of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
It is demonstrated that early fecundity is extraordinarily sensitive to laying temperature, but is relatively well buffered against developmental and cross-generational effects (maximum effect only 7 per cent, for sire temperature). Expand
Genetic and maternal influences on life history plasticity in milkweed bugs (Oncopeltus): response to temperature
TLDR
Both life history plasticity and maternal effects on life history traits which tend to enhance the colonizing ability of offspring born to mothers that have undergone reproductive diapause are found. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF MATERNAL CHARACTERS
We develop quantitative‐genetic models for the evolution of multiple traits under maternal inheritance, in which traits are transmitted through non‐Mendelian as well as Mendelian mechanisms, andExpand
Maternal Effects in Insect Life Histories
TLDR
Because development is an elaborative process and adult phenotype is a summation of activities accrued over the life span of the individual, developmental events occurring early in the life cycle can significantly influence the phenotype at later stages. Expand
Genetic variability of flight metabolism in Drosophila melanogaster. III. Effects of Gpdh allozymes and environmental temperature on power output.
TLDR
Results show that Gpdh can be considered a minor polygene affecting quantitative variation in the power output during flight and that genotype-by-environment interaction is an important component of that effect. Expand

These experiments demonstrate that developmental temperatures, both within and between generations, influence territorial success in male flies. Expand

From these results one can conclude that the impact of inherited environmental effects arising from these pathways is documented for a diversity of plant and animal taxa. Expand

TLDR
Results of experiments for estimating the intensity of sexual and viability selection on wing length in a recently captured population of Drosophila melanogaster support an equilibrium model in that the standardized response to viability selection was opposite in sign and similar in magnitude to the estimated response due to sexual selection.
