Project Description

Maternal effects can be described as the effects of a mother’s phenotype on her offspring’s phenotype through pathways other than direct genetic transmission, for example through epigenetic changes in the DNA, resource transmission in the womb, or behavioural responses to offspring behaviour. The aim of this project is to develop quantitative genetics and/or individual-based models of the evolution of maternal effects, for example, in response to environmental change and/or in spatially heterogeneous environments.
