... in size and mass during ontogeny. The goal of this study was to examine how growth and development in the emu ( Dromaius novaehollandiae ) hindlimb skeleton reflects the demands placed upon it by ontogenetic changes in locomotor mechanics and body mass. Bone strain patterns in the femur and tibiotarsus...

... translated through egg size variation. We used the natural range in emu Dromaius novaehollandiae egg size, from 400 g to>700 g, to examine the influence of maternal investment in eggs on the morphology and physiology of hatchlings. Female emus provisioned larger eggs with a greater absolute amount...

... applicable to the emu, a ratite bird species. We studied cardiovascular physiology over the interval from 60% to 90% of the emu's 50-day incubation period. During this period,embryonic emus exhibit a slight fall in resting heart rate (from 171 beats min -1 to 154 beats min -1 ) and a doubling of mean...
