Pre- and Postnatal Nutritional Histories Influence Reproductive Maturation and Ovarian Function in the Rat
(Public Library of Science, 2009-08-25)
While prepubertal nutritional influences appear to play a role in sexual maturation, there is a need to clarify the potential contributions of maternal and childhood influences in setting the tempo of reproductive maturation. ...
Mathematical modelling of anoestrus in dairy cows and the linkage to nutrition
Postpartum anoestrus is a major reproductive problem in New Zealand dairy cows and its duration is related to the nutrition levels both pre and post calving. However, the mechanistic details of this relationship are largely ...
The evolution of a truncated Gaussian probability density through time: Modelling animal liveweights after selection
The form of the probability density derived from the evolution in time of a previously truncated frequency distribution of animal Liveweights is of interest in animal husbandry. Truncated frequency distributions arise when ...
Population growth as a nonlinear process
The evolution of the probability density of a biological population is described using nonlinear stochastic differential equations for the growth process and the related Fokker-Planck equations for the time-dependent ...
