F Caval-Holme, JL Payne & JM Skotheim, “Physiological and cell biological limits on protist offspring size” will appear in Evolution.  Just a few minor changes left to complete... Good news comes in waves. This is an interesting survey of ~3000 parent offspring pairs of the single celled protist foraminifera. Even though parent and offspring sizes can differ by a thousand fold, they still increase together as larger parents have larger, rather than just more offspring.  So, across eukaryotes, from single to multi-celled, offspring size scales with parent size.
