Published: 21 March 2014
...Frances Zewe; David Booth Many tadpole species aggregate in nature and if larval densities are not too high there is generally a positive effect of grouping on growth and development. The benefits of grouping may be due to social facilitation and the availability of other tadpoles' faeces...

.... In contrast, growth varied more within populations than over time or between waterbodies and the observed results were considered to reflect genetic, rather than environmental, differences. Abnormalities were also hypothesised to reflect genetic differences and not environmental conditions. Limnodynastes...

...L. Llewellyn A tagging/recapture program was carried out on large freshwater fish species in the Murrumbidgee and Murray Rivers to examine their growth. Internal body tags were found to be more reliable than opercular tags. Adequate recapture data for further analysis was only obtained for Golden...

To determine the degree of plasticity in the forearm growth rate and hence the reliability of this method, the forearm growth of two groups of captive-bred flying-foxes whose mothers were fed different diets was compared. The difference in diet, a protein supplement of pollen...

A bright green, socially just, high economic growth scenario is one of a number that are being developed to illustrate how forestry might be pursued within the context of ecologically sustainable development. The directions described in this scenario are hypothetical and are intended to provoke...

We need to know the relationship between the density of mouse populations and loss of yield at key phases of crop growth so that management targets...
