Abstract

• Responses to drought-exposed host plants are stage dependent. • Drought-exposed host plants reduced survival and body mass of prediapause larvae. • Postdiapause larvae grow faster and become larger on drought-exposed host plants. • Postdiapause larvae prefer host plants that increase their performance. • Mothers prefer plants that increase their young but not old offspring performance.
