Data from: Long-term effect of yolk carotenoid levels on testis size in a precocial bird

Mathieu Giraudeau, Ann-Kathrin Ziegler & Barbara Tschirren
Conditions experienced during prenatal development can have long-lasting organizational effects on offspring. Maternal carotenoids deposited in the eggs of birds and other oviparous species play an important role during fast embryonic growth and chick development through their antioxidant properties. However, the long-term consequences of variation in maternal carotenoid transfer for the offspring have seldom been considered. Since plasma carotenoid levels at adulthood are known to influence testis size and yolk carotenoid levels influence the ability...
