In terms of lactation energetics, sea otters conform more to patterns observed in terrestrial rather than marine mammals, which appear to have negligible milk production costs (Costa and Trillmich.   Traditionally, the fact that reproduction in eutherian (=placental) mammals tends towards prolonged intrauterine development and short lactation has been interpreted as an evolutionary Cited by: Such spatial and/or temporal separation of feeding from reproduction is a fundamental component of the reproductive biology of all pinnipeds, regardless of their breeding system. Adaptation to this constraint has resulted in reproductive patterns that incorporate varying periods of time spent fasting on the rookery and feeding at sea (Bonner Cited by: Energetics of locomotion: Marine mammals utilize strategies to keep locomotory costs low during long-distance migrations and while diving. In mysticete whales, for example, total costs during migration may not be elevated above maintenance levels since its travel speed is nearly identical to the speed at which the cost of transport is minimum.

We investigated the reproductive energetics of two reed frogs, Hyperolius viridiflavus ommatostictus and Hyperolius marmoratus taeniatus. Rates of CO₂ release of calling male H. viridiflavus ommatostictus reached values of mL/g h equivalent to an O₂ consumption of mL O₂/g h. Mean estimated O₂ consumption was mL/g h at an average call rate of 5, calls/ by: In this, our Second Edition of Reproduction in Mammals, we are responding to numerous requests for a more up-to-date and rather more detailed treatment of the subject. The First Edition was accorded an excellent reception, but the first five books were written ten years ago and inevitably there have been advances on many fronts since then. Mammalian Energetics: Interdisciplinary Views of Metabolism and Reproduction by Tomasi, Thomas E. A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. Extant marine mammals include more than species with representatives in three mammalian orders: Carnivora: pinnipeds, marine otters, and polar bears; Cetacea: whales, dolphins, and porpoises; and Sirenia: manatees and dugongs.
