Idiosyncratic evolution of maternal effects in response to juvenile malnutrition in Drosophila

Journal of Evolutionary Biology

Feb 27, 2015

Roshan K Vijendravarma, Tadeusz J Kawecki

Abstract

Maternal effects often affect fitness traits, but there is little experimental evidence pertaining to their contribution to response to selection imposed by novel environments. We studied the evolution of maternal effects in Drosophila populations selected for tolerance to chronic larva...read more

Gene-Environment Interaction & Behaviour

Gene-environment interaction is when two different genotypes respond to environmental variation in different ways.Genes and environment interact to form an individual's personality. Abnormal or extreme behaviour could thus be explained by hereditary factors in combination with poor environmental conditions.
