Sample text

Fishes are facultatively flexible about where and when they lay their eggs and this can engender a maternal component to sex determination and consequent sex ratio differences within a population. Additionally, there is significant ‘between female’ variation in offspring sex ratio, even when the females are experimentally spawned at the same time, for example, M. menidia (Conover and Heins, 1987a; Conover and Kynard, 1981; Lagomarsino and Conover, 1993). A series of laboratory experiments demonstrated a maternal (Conover and Heins, 1987b; Conover and Kynard, 1981) and paternal (Conover and Heins, 1987b) component interacting with a simulated seasonal environmental shift resulting in temperature-dependant sex determination in M.

See discussion on cod, Maternal Effects in Fish Populations 11 G. , 2001). There are many pathways through which a female’s phenotype can influence the phenotype of her offspring. Some of these pathways are unique to fishes while others either do not occur or have not been examined in fishes. , 2001, cited in Gorman and Nager, 2004), incubation temperature (birds, citations in Gorman and Nager, 2004), and behaviour, including spawning and nesting site choice, and parental care. The latter also includes post-hatching parental feeding, as displayed in many mammals and birds, which is also a pathway for a paternal effect in brooding fish with paternal care (Green and McCormick, 2005b).

Maternal effects are strongest in early life stages of mammals, stages which are thought to be a more important contribution to evolutionary change.
