... event was predicted, i.e. the last six days of a pregnancy, from which point they were fed the commercial diet until parturition (average duration of commercial diet: 3.75 days). The subsequent brood was thus examined for changes in response to dietary manipulation at the end of gestation. As embryos...

We investigated the effects of three maternal basking regimes...
