Data from: Maternal exposure to predator scents: offspring phenotypic adjustment and dispersal

Elvire Bestion, Aimeric Teyssier, Fabien Aubret, Jean Clobert & Julien Cote
Predation is a strong selective pressure generating morphological, physiological and behavioural responses in organisms. As predation risk is often higher during juvenile stages, antipredator defences expressed early in life are paramount to survival. Maternal effects are an efficient pathway to produce such defences. We investigated whether maternal exposure to predator cues during gestation affected juvenile morphology, behaviour and dispersal in common lizards (Zootoca vivipara). We exposed 21 gravid females to saurophagous snake cues for one...
