Linking larval nutrition to adult reproductive traits in the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis.Bonoan, Rachael E.
Throughout an organism’s lifetime, resources are strategically allocated to many different functions, including reproduction. Reproduction can be costly for both sexes; females produce nutrient-rich eggs, while males of many species produce large and complex ejaculates.
