Shifts in body temperature and escape behaviour of female Podarcis muralis during pregnancy
Average field body temperatures of pregnant female Podarcis muralis (32.620C) were significantly lower than that of males and non-pregnant females (overall average: 33.740C). However, when tested inExpand

Morphological correlates of burst speed and field movement patterns: the behavioural adjustment of locomotion in wall lizards (Podarcis muralis)
Locomotion of lizards has clear morphological determinants and is important for developing activities such as feeding, social interaction and predator avoidance. Thus, morphological variation isExpand

Thermal dependence of embryonic growth and development in brown trout
Fertilized eggs from a brown trout Salmo trutta population in northern Spain were incubated in the laboratory at 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18° C. Developmental stage and embryo size were monitoredExpand

The influence of thermal and hydric environments on embryonic use of energy and nutrients, and hatchling traits, in the wall lizards (Podarcis muralis)
Abstract Among (different) clutch variation in egg composition, influence of thermal and hydric environments on incubating eggs, embryonic use of energy and nutrients, and hatchling traits wereExpand

Thermal sensitivity of growth, food intake and activity of juvenile brown trout.
Growth rate, food intake and activity of juvenile brown trout (Salmo trutta L.) were studied at 10 constant temperatures (2.6-22.3 degrees C) and using eight full-sib families. We foundExpand

Effects of size and morphology on swimming performance in juvenile brown trout (Salmo trutta L.)
Abstract –  Our study assesses swimming capacity (speed and stamina) and possible morphometric determinants of locomotor performance of juvenile brown trout (Salmo trutta L.). We addressed theseExpand

Among Clutch Variation in Reproductive Output and Egg Size in the Wall Lizard (Podarcis muralis) from a Lowland Population of Northern Spain
Among clutch variation in reproductive output and egg size of the wall lizard (Podarcis muralis) are reported. Females under semi-natural conditions laid eggs from late April to early July. TheExpand
