Resource limitation, predation risk and compensatory growth
in a damselfly.
However, no previous studies have correlated stocking densities and compensatory growth
in penaeid shrimp in combination with the possible benefits of biofloc culture during the nursery phase.
Wilson PN and DF Osbourne Compensatory growth
after undernutrition in mammals and birds.
Over several years, we have faced numerous plant-identification challenges for certain species; in-field and in-class discussions (Figure 3) on plant compensatory growth
have generated a list of unexpected research questions and interesting ideas.
2000) suggested that the growth of different tissues in compensatory growth
depends on breed, age of the animal, and the duration of refeeding.
The researchers placed the fishes on low food for two weeks followed by a return to normal food levels, and found that female guppies that underwent compensatory growth
as juveniles produced less offspring than would be expected for their body size.
Balsam fir (Abies balsamea) generally shows very little compensatory growth
following browsing, and browsed stems eventually become progressively weaker and then die (Brandner et al.
However, it can be postulated that accelerated post-pubertal heifers having lower post-partum BW shift nutrients away from MY to meet growth requirements and compensatory growth
is generally seen in such first-lactating cows.
For those buying cull cows to finish, they should select large-framed thin cows at body condition score of 2 which could increase in liveweight by 2kg a day for the first 30 or 40-day period of compensatory growth
Determining whether compensatory growth
occurs in young moose under natural conditions has important management consequences.
of fish is rapid or faster than normal growth rate of fish resulting from refeeding after fasting.
While there may have been a degree of compensatory growth
, it's important to remember that you're still dealing with a ruminant which has achieved a feed conversion rate of 3.
