Combined effect of incubation and ambient temperature on the feeding performance of a small ectotherm

Bilcke, Joke; Downes, Sharon; Buscher, Ignase

Description

Many ectothermic animals are subject to fluctuating environmental temperatures during incubation as well as post-birth. Numerous studies examined the effects of incubation temperature or ambient temperature on various aspects of offspring phenotype. We investigated whether incubation temperature and ambient temperature have an interactive effect on offspring performance. Our study animal, the ectothermic vertebrate Lampropholis delicata (common garden skink; De Vis 1888), experiences...[Show more]
