Early-life environmental conditions influence parasitism at adulthood and life-history of a cuckoo host

Jesús Miguel Avilés
Environmental conditions experienced by individuals early in life can extend into adult phenotypes with potential fitness consequences. Early life environmental effects can be relevant for hosts because bad early life conditions may impair host cognition increasing the risk of future parasitism or lowering parasite recognition.
