Data from: Incubation temperature and social context affect the nest exodus of precocial ducklings

Sydney F. Hope, Robert A. Kennamer, Schuyler G. Van Montfrans & William A. Hopkins
The environments that animals experience during development have important fitness consequences. In birds, parents influence the developmental environment of their offspring through incubation. Subtle changes in incubation temperature affect offspring morphology and physiology, such as growth, immune function, and thermoregulation, yet little is known about how it may affect critical early-life behaviors. Because expression of behavior can be influenced by the social environment, the effect of incubation temperature on behavior may be context-dependent. We investigated...
