... parturition (average duration of commercial diet: 3.75 days). The subsequent brood was thus examined for changes in response to dietary manipulation at the end of gestation. As embryos hatch from their chorions during the last few days of pregnancy ( Novelli et al., 2018 ), the offspring would have been free...

...Alison Cree; Kelly M. Hare ABSTRACT Maternal basking regime can affect gestation length in viviparous squamates, but effects on offspring phenotype in species with extended pregnancies and ability to delay the birth season are unclear. We investigated the effects of three maternal basking regimes...

... to disproportionately high rates of mortality at the end of lactation in this species. To examine and quantify metabolic changes associated with reproduction, we measured the resting metabolic rate (RMR) of a female sea otter across gestation, lactation and non-reproductive periods. Concurrently, measurements were made...

...Suzanne L. Munns; Ashley Edwards; Stewart Nicol; Peter B. Frappell ABSTRACT High gestational loads have been associated with a range of ecological costs, such as decreased locomotor ability; however, the physiological mechanisms that underpin these changes are poorly understood. In this study...

..., 2006 ; Jones et al., 2007 ; Fowden et al., 2009 ). Biometry of the feto-placental unit has been obtained from different animal models of high maternal weight or obesity. Offspring from obese ewes increased their weight at mid-gestation whereas placentome weight was not altered ( Zhu et al., 2009...
