ULTRASTRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL MORPHOLOGY OF EGGSHELLS SUPPORTS THE IDEA THAT DINOSAUR EGGS WERE INCUBATED BURIED IN A SUBSTRATE
:  The reproductive biology of dinosaurs is of great interest, particularly in light of the many fossil eggs assigned to this group. The ultrastructural characteristics of dinosaur eggshells areExpand

The Ostrich: Biology, Production and Health
The ostrich is a relatively new agricultural animal in many parts of the world and even in South Africa it was domesticated only a little over a century ago. Recently however there has been a hugeExpand

  • 1 March 1995
1. A batch of 320 ostrich eggs from 9 different farms in Zimbabwe were incubated in a single stage operation and the fate of each was recorded. 2. Hatchability was only 37.2% and the result of highExpand

Physiological effects of incubation temperature on embryonic development in reptiles and birds
Introduction Generally, the incubation temperature of bird eggs is conservative: within a species there is little variation in incubation temperature at which normal development can proceed. ByExpand

An Egg-Adult Association, Gender, and Reproduction in Pterosaurs
A pterosaur fossil that includes a small, soft-shelled egg indicates a reproductive strategy like that of crocodilians. A sexually mature individual of Darwinopterus preserved together with an eggExpand
