Solicitation displays by offspring and responses by parents are commonly regarded as phenotypic expressions of the conflict over parental investment between genes expressed in offspring and their parents. Models for the resolution of the parent–offspring conflict have assumed genetic variation for levels of both offspring solicitation and parental response in order to allow offspring and parental strategies to coevolve and the conflict to be evolutionarily resolved. Empirical research has… CONTINUE READING
