Data from: Different effects of paternal trans-generational immune priming on survival and immunity in step and genetic offspring

Hendrik Eggert, Joachim Kurtz & Maike F. Diddens-De Buhr
Paternal trans-generational immune priming, whereby fathers provide immune protection to offspring, has been demonstrated in the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum exposed to the insect pathogen Bacillus thuringiensis. It is currently unclear how such protection is transferred, as in contrast to mothers, fathers do not directly provide offspring with a large amount of substances. In addition to sperm, male flour beetles transfer seminal fluids in a spermatophore to females during copulation. Depending on whether paternal...
