(mx) was 0.132, 0.304 and 0.333 females per female per day at age of 26th day, 20th day and 15th day with age specific survival (lx) was 0.53, 0.46 and 0.24 days at 24 +- 0.5 AdegC, 27 +- 0.5 AdegC and 32 +- 4 AdegC, respectively.
A linear regression model was used to represent the relationship between fecundity
and female size (TL) for Stage I and III.
The mean fecundity
and mean relative fecundity
were 14892.31 [+ or -] 2854.20 (3257.14-76377.36) and 49.82 [+ or -] 9.87 (6.27-21.85) respectively.
was estimated by the number of developing embryos in the uteri and the number of developing oocytes in the ovaries.
When partners were modeled individually, no associations were observed between ln-transformed chemical concentrations and couple fecundity
even after adjustment with the exception of the biomarker 4-HB (Table 3).
Additionally to the absolute fecundity
, relative fecundity
(RF) has also been calculated following Hardisty (1964):
Under hormonal protocol of fecundity
trial seven goats (87.50%) out of eight goats showed induced estrus.
Daily observation were carried out to know the fecundity
, the duration in the days of pre-oviposition, oviposition and post-oviposition periods, the egg hatching percentage, the larval development duration, pupal duration, survival and mortality on different artificial diets.
rather than egg output was measured (Munger 1942; Larentzaki et al.
Understanding reproductive patterns, the size at maturity, the behavior of ovigerous females, fecundity
, and egg/ larval quality all contribute to estimates of the turnover capacity of natural populations.
ranged from 4365 to 65982, and mean fecundity
was calculated 25349.
eridania indicate that pupal weight may also have an influence on fecundity
