To explore the importance of aestivation
for this species, the present study seeks to determine the consequences of interruption of aestivation
on the reproductive performances of H.
These observations indicated the presence of earthworms in aestivation
In a wetland mosaic, one can imagine that wetlands differ in timing of such blooms, and turtles that are able to capitalize on this spatial and temporal variance will have the best chance at reproduction and surviving aestivation
Terrestrial movements in relation to aestivation
and the annual reproductive cycle of Kinosternon leucostomum.
Another potential cause of gene flow between successive cohorts may be prolonged hibernation or aestivation
The predominant, generally deep-pit form of Rusophycus that is present might represent escape, concealment or aestivation
terrestris did not come out of aestivation
(summer resting stage) in any great numbers.
The behavior of certain spermophiles with special reference to a aestivation
Cold torpor, diapause, delayed hatching and aestivation
in reptiles and birds.
and direct development as alternative strategies in the speckled wood butterfly Pararge aegeria in Sweden.
was the target of many studies; hence lots of aspects of its physiology and biochemistry were elucidated, notably for the animal groups-anuran amphibians and pulmonate land snails .
Turtles underwent histological analysis of testes and hormone levels to establish and investigate the species's natural cycle in different stages with special focus on aestivation
behavior as it relates to such as reproductive strategies.
