Closely related and ecologically similar species that overlap in ranges can coexist through resource partitioning without one pushing the others to extinction through competition. Understanding resource partitioning among species is essential to predicting how species decline can affect the functioning of communities and ecosystems. In this study, we(More)
Alternative reproductive tactics (ARTs) evolve to maximise fitness by favouring alternative phenotypes when high variance in relative fitness occurs amongst individuals. In the damselfly Hetaerina vulnerata males occur as either territorial or nonterritorial, depending on whether males acquire and defend an area to which females are attracted for(More)
AIMS We analyzed the effect of multiparity on the fiber type composition of two skeletal muscles involved in the maintenance of the micturition process, the pelvic pubococcygeus (Pc) and perineal bulbospongiosus (Bs) muscles in nulliparous and multiparous rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus). METHODS We used the basic ATPase and NADH-TR techniques to identify(More)
Rabbits nurse inside a nest once/day for 3-5 min. We quantified mother's time inside the nest box (TINB) and milk output as we varied the number and age of pups across lactation. TINB was larger and milk output smaller on lactation days 2, 3, 7, or 8, when one pup (2-3 days old) was provided, but normal on Days 4-6, when suckling eight pups. Maintaining 1,(More)
