The generated power abstraction is Process, Voltage and Temperature (PVT)… (More)
Ferrets have become an increasingly important animal in biological research. This paper discusses unique aspects of the ferret's anatomy, reproductive behavior, husbandry, and diseases as they relate to the research use of this animal.
