Data from: Maternal programming of offspring antipredator behavior in a seabird

Judith Morales, Alberto Lucas & Alberto Velando
Predation risk is an important environmental factor for animal populations, expected to trigger maternal effects to prepare offspring for living in an environment with predators. Yet, evidence of adaptive anticipatory maternal effects in wild animals is still weak. Here, we explored this question in a wild colony of yellow-legged gulls, Larus michahellis. To this aim, prior to laying we exposed mothers to either mink decoys or non-predator rabbit decoys and explored the antipredator behavior of...
