Abstract: Organisms are adapted to reproduce in their specific environment by a range of different traits. For many animals, reproduction is tied to specific conditions, that trigger or enable the reproductive events. This thesis deals with traits associated with reproduction, their functions and interactions with the environment. Some traits are plastic, and can change in an individual’s lifetime depending on the environment, while other traits are more or less fixed. The variation in trait expression wi... more
