Data from: The effect of maternal and paternal immune challenge on offspring immunity and reproduction in a cricket

Kathryn B. McNamara, Emile Van Lieshout & Leigh W. Simmons
Trans-generational immune priming is the transmission of enhanced immunity to offspring following a parental immune challenge. Although within-generation increased investment into immunity demonstrates clear costs on reproductive investment in a number of taxa, the potential for immune priming to impact on offspring reproductive investment has not been thoroughly investigated. We explored the reproductive costs of immune priming in a field cricket, Teleogryllus oceanicus. To assess the relative importance of maternal and paternal immune status, mothers...
