Understanding the early developmental period – the period that goes from conception until the animal reaches sexual maturity – is crucial to understand the adult phenotype. Disturbances during this phase of development have long-lasting consequences on the fitness of any individual. Such disturbances can be triggered by abiotic factors, but also by the social environment where an individual develops. During the early stages of life, parents and siblings are the main modifiers. I am going to present some of my work in the life-history consequences of the prenatal and postnatal social environment.
