This chapter presents an overview of potential maternal effects on behavioral development, including pre- and postnatal effects of social experiences, stress, and seasonality on the expression of developing phenotypes. It suggests that maternal effects will have a selective advantage when they increase the survival and reproductive success of offspring. This chapter also discusses effects of maternal physiology including gonadal hormones, glucocorticoids and melatonin on offspring phenotype.

Keywords:   maternal effects, behavioral development, phenotypes, social experiences, offspring survival, reproductive success, maternal physiology, gonadal hormones, glucocorticoids, melatonin
