Development time, adult body weight and fecundity of female Trichonephila senegalensis spiders

Nelli Lissowsky, Simona Kralj-Fišer & Jutta M. Schneider
Variation in life history traits within a population is caused by genetic, maternal and environmental factors. We explore high variability in development time, adult body weight and fecundity in females of the sexually-size dimorphic spider Trichonephila senegalensis. While their mothers originated from two habitats – strongly seasonal Namibia and mildly seasonal South Africa, we reared F1 females under standardized laboratory conditions. We find that a considerable part of the variability in recorded life-history traits is...
