72), females produced significantly more clutches than males brooded during both underwater visual census periods (2001: df=37, t=3.
7 times as many) than males brooded in the Ria Formosa in 2001 and 2002 (Table 2).
By May 26, I realized that none of the eggs the Wyandotte pullet had brooded would hatch.
But, as yet, of my 12 Wyandotte pullets, only the one persistent pullet has brooded.
Total number of larvae brooded
(total larval production) on each sampling date along the season showed a high correlation with brooding percentages ([r.
Embryos were more developed and larger in winter than fall, and larger females brooded
larger-sized embryos (Fig.
Female oysters brooded larvae at the early veliger stage (115-135 [micro]m) in the infrabranchial chamber.
The velar ciliature in the brooded larva of the Chilean oyster Ostrea chilensis (Philippi, 1845).
Both male and female Chuck-will's-widows in our study brooded
young after hatching, with males spending less time brooding than females.
For females to initiate a second clutch, males generally have to take over care of dependent fledglings from the first brood, whereas single brooded
pairs typically divide care of the fledglings among both parents (Evans Ogden and Stutchbury 1997, Vega Rivera et al.
We collected blood samples from 10 single-chick broods (January 1990, with unknown initial clutch and brood sizes) and 13 two-chick broods (December 1990) and their social parents (adults that brooded
