This chapter describes an effect which produces population cycles and may be thought of as the mechanism for inertia in population growth. This effect, the maternal effect, is the passing of quality from mothers to daughters. Although this effect has been well known for some time, it has only recently attracted attention. It is argued that this effect provides an important part of the inertial model of population growth.

Keywords:   population cycles, population inertia, maternal effect, time lags
