Data from: Does egg carotenoid improve larval quality in Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus)?

Torvald B. Egeland, Jarle Tryti Nordeide & Einar Skarstad Egeland
Females in mutually ornamented species are often less conspicuously ornamented than their male conspecifics. It has been hypothesized that offspring quality may decrease if females invest more resources into ornaments at the expense of resources in eggs. An experiment was carried out to test whether natural variation in carotenoid in the eggs from a wild population of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) was associated with survival and growth of their offspring until hatching. Wild Arctic charr...
