1. The hypothesis that maternal effects act as an adaptive bridge in translating maternal environments into offspring phenotypes and thereby affecting population dynamics has not been studied in the well-controlled fields. 2. In this study, the effects of maternal population-density on offspring stress axis, reproduction and population dynamics were studied in root voles (Microtus oeconomus). Parental enclosures for breeding offspring were established by introducing 6 adults per sex into each of 4 (low density) and...
