- How to measure maturation: a comparison of probabilistic methods used to test for genotypic variation and plasticity in the decision to matureEwan Harney
Institute of Integrative Biology, University of Liverpool, Biosciences Building, Crown Street, Liverpool, L69 7ZB, United Kingdom
Evolution 67:525-38. 2013..Our results support the idea that maturation thresholds can evolve but also suggest that the notion of a threshold based on a single fixed state is an oversimplification that underestimates the adaptability of these important traits...
- The influence of context-dependent maternal effects on population dynamics: an experimental testS J Plaistow
School of Biological Sciences, University of Liverpool, Biosciences Building, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, UK
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 364:1049-58. 2009..This context dependence of effects at the population level means that, in fluctuating populations, maternal effects cause intermittent delayed density dependence that does not lead to persistent cycles...
