Data from: Maternal programming of offspring in relation to food availability in an insect (Forficula auricularia)

Shirley Raveh, Dominik Vogt & Mathias Koelliker
Maternal effects can induce adjustments in offspring phenotype to the environment experienced by the mother. Of particular interest is if mothers can program their offspring to cope best under matching environmental conditions, but the evidence for such anticipatory maternal effects (AME) is limited.

Offspring produced by females that had access to high- or low-food...
