"Long term effects of developmental stress in zebra finches"
The aim of this project is to understand how environmental conditions early in life contribute to the expression of fitness relevant behavioral, life history and biometric traits and how such effects are transmitted across generations. The project allows linking adult traits under sexual and natural selection to epigenetic developmental variables such as availability of food or the extent of nestling competition during development.
