Offspring size affects the post-metamorphic performance of a colonial marine invertebrate
Marshall, D.J., T.F. Bolton, and M.J. Keough

Bryozoan colonies that came from larger larvae survived better, grew faster, and reproduced sooner or produced more embryos than colonies that came from smaller larvae. These effects crossed generations, with colonies from larger larvae themselves producing larger larvae.
