  • 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 were studied in the wall lizard Podarcis muralis from a lowland population of Northern Spain. When initial egg mass was kept constant, we found that some measured egg variables such as water, lipid-free organic material, ash, calcium and magnesium in egg contents, and ash and magnesium in eggshell, remained… CONTINUE READING
