The contractility of airway smooth muscle is fully established at late term at birth but its responsiveness during fetal life has not been defined. In this study, the contractile force of airway smooth muscle to acetylcholine (ACh), K+ depolarizing solution, and electrical field stimulation (EFS) was measured in tracheas from small fetal pigs. Contraction(More)
The effects of breeding season (late spring to early autumn) on south-east Queensland male koala fertility were examined to improve the efficacy of the AI procedure and to determine the practicality of using free-range animals as semen donors for a genome resource bank. Seasonal changes in male koala reproductive function were assessed in a wild free-range(More)
