Abstract 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… 
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.

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.
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.
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.
Cross-life stage and cross-generational effects of γ irradiations at the egg stage on Drosophila melanogaster life histories
TLDR
An explanation of the beneficial long lasting effects induced by early irradiation is offered, which suggests that these effects are due to cross-life stage and cross-generational adaptive phenotypic plasticity.

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.
Cross-generational fitness effects of infection in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The results suggest that cross-generation priming in invertebrates may not be a general phenomenon, and more work is needed to determine how widespread it is.

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.
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).
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, and
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.
Animals and temperature: phenotypic and evolutionary adaptation.
TLDR
This work focuses on temperature adaptation and genetic polymorphism in aquatic animals, and investigates the role of stress proteins and the stress response in the Drosophila melanogaster model.
Matching field and laboratory environments: effects of neglecting daily temperature variation on insect reaction norms
TLDR
The effect of rearing treatment on the phenotypic plasticity of the adult wing pattern, on life history traits and on larval feeding rhythms was investigated and the results are discussed with respect to the necessity of matching field and laboratory environments in studies of norms of reaction or of lifehistory traits.

TLDR
It is concluded that pre-adult developmental time is not a causal factor for the determination of adult longevity in Drosophila melanogaster.
Temperature acclimation and competitive fitness: an experimental test of the beneficial acclimation assumption.
TLDR
The assumption that acclimation always confers an advantage is demonstrated to be false, and acclimating to the higher temperature decreased competitive fitness at that temperature.
