1. Hormone and metabolic changes during the lactating period of Weddell seals [K071_1990_1991_NZ_1]
Weddell seals have been found to have an absence of diurnal patterns of secretion of the hormones cortisol and melatonin, the hormones which animals use to monitor the annual pattern of changes in ...


2. Metabolic consequences of diving in the Weddell seal (Leptoychotes weddelli) [K065_2002_2003_NZ_1]
To achieve a greater understanding of metabolic efficiency during diving, it is important to establish the degree of metabolic suppression (reduction of oxygen consumption) at the cellular level, ...


3. The energy expenditure by mother Weddell seals during the suckling period [K071_1996_1997_NZ_1]
Weddell seals are well adapted polar animals. They give birth to pups in the Antarctic summer when they haul out onto the ice. While feeding their pups, they have a massive fasting weight loss (and ...


4. GPR profiles and sediment samples from raised beaches along the McMurdo Sound coast to understand the composition, make up and mode of contruction of the beaches [K015_1998_2000_NZ_1]
Due to the continued uplift of the coastline as a response to the retreat of the last glacial maximum ice sheet, beaches are raised above the level of wave and ice push activity and are essentially ...


5. Determining if lactating Weddell seal mothers are indeed fasting [K071_1996_1997_NZ_2]
Weddell seals are well adapted polar animals. They give birth to pups in the Antarctic summer when they haul out onto the ice. While feeding their pups, they have a massive fasting weight loss (and ...


6. Do lactating seals maintain blood glucose levels whilst fasting during lactation? [K071_1993_1994_NZ_2]
Weddell seals are well adapted polar animals. They give birth to pups in the Antarctic summer when they haul out onto the ice. While feeding their pups, they have a massive fasting weight loss (and ...


7. Does melatonin secretion occurs when Weddell seals are exposed to darkness? [K071_1993_1994_NZ_1]
In many animals, seasonal events such as reproduction and changes in pelage are regulated by the alteration in length of daylight throughout the year. In many animals, the hormone melatonin is secreted ...


8. Melatonin secretion patterns in relation to changes in light intensity and activity in Weddell seals [K071_1987_1988_NZ_1]
In many animals, seasonal events such as reproduction and changes in pelage are regulated by the alteration in length of daylight throughout the year. Weddell seals are subjected to 24 hours of sunlight ...


9. The effects of melatonin implants on Weddell seals pelage (Leptonychotes weddelli) [K071_1985_1986_NZ_1]
In many animals, seasonal events such as reproduction and changes in pelage are regulated by the alteration in length of daylight throughout the year. These changes in lighting become manifested as ...
