  • Abstract. In expanding populations, individuals that produce dormant offspring when conditions are otherwise suitable for growth and reproduction incur a cost, since the dormant life stage delays reproduction. These individuals are at a disadvantage unless (1) there is not enough time for reproduction to occur before the environment degrades, or (2) the probability of death in the non-dormant state is high. Here we investigate resting stages of the freshwater bryozoan Plumatella emarginata to… CONTINUE READING
