Mothers have the ability to profoundly affect the quality of their offspring--from the size and quality of their eggs to where, when, and how eggs and young are placed, and from providing for and protecting developing young to choosing a mate. In many instances, these maternal effects may be the single most important contributor to variation in offspring fitness. This book explores the wide variety of maternal effects that have evolved in plants and animals as mechanisms of adaptation to temporally and spatially heterogeneous environments. Topics range from the evolutionary implications of maternal effects to the assessment and measurement of maternal effects. Four detailed case studies are also included. This book represents the first synthesis of the current state of knowledge concerning the evolution of maternal effects and their adaptive significance.
Part 1: Theoretical Considerations; 1. The Evolutionary Genetics of Maternal Effects; 2. The Influence of Direct and Indirect Genetic Effects on the Evolution of Behavior: Social and Sexual Selection Meet Maternal Effects; 3. Inertial Growth: Population Dynamics Based on Maternal Effects; 4. What is Adaptive Environmentally Induced Parental Effect?; 5. Oviposition Decisions as Maternal Effects: Conundrums and Opportunities for Conservation Biologists; Part 2: Assessment and Measurement; 6. The Detection and Measurement of Maternal Effects; 7. The Genetics of Maternal Effects; 8. The Role of Environmental Variation in Parental Effects Expression; Part 3: Reviews of Maternal Effects Expression; 9. Maternal Environmental Effects in Plants: Adaptive Plasticity?; 10. Maternal Effects as Adaptations for Transgenerational Phenotypic Plasticity (TPP); 11. Are Maternal Effects in Fish Adaptive or Merely Physiological Side-Effects?; 12. Maternal and Paternal Effects in Birds; 13. Maternal Influences on Larval Competition in Insects; 14. Maternal Effects, Developmental Plasticity, and Life History Evolution: An Amphibial Model; 15. Perinatal Influences on the Reproductive Behavior of Adult Rodents; Part 4: Case Studies of Maternal Effects; 16. Maternal Control of Fly Diapause; 17. Adaptation of Maternal Effects in the Wild: Path Analysis of Natural Variation and Experimental Tests of Causation; 18. Maternal Effects and the Maintenance of Environmental Sex Determination; 19. Density-Mediated Maternal Effects on Seed Size in Wild Radish: Genetic Variation and its Evolutionary Implications; Concluding Remarks: Generalizations, Implications, and Future Directions
"Its main message is that maternal effects may often have evolved as adaptations for life in heterogeneous environments. The nineteen chapters fall into four groups: theoretical and conceptual issues; assessing and measuring maternal effects; reviews of maternal effects in various taxa...; and specific case studies in four taxa..." --Evolution
"The volume edited by Mousseau & Fox is concerned with maternal adaptations, those mechanisms that mothers employ to enhance the fitness of their offspring; with maternal effects, parents contribute more than genes to the next generation. . . . The volume is organized into four parts: (1) recent theoretical developments; (2) assessment and measurement of maternal effects; (3) reviews of maternal effects across taxa; and (4) case studies of the adaptive significance of maternal effects. . . . [Maternal effects] blur the distinction between genetic and environmental components of phenotypic variation and present a range of challenges from co
