The grazing behaviour of lactating Bennett's wallabies was studied on a number of different pasture types. Increases in mean sward height resulted in a greatly reduced bite rate and an increase in the search time per bite. All wallabies showe...

Calcium is necessary for secretion of pituitary hormones. Many of the biological effects of Ca2+ are mediated by the Ca2+-binding protein calmodulin (CaM), which interacts specifically with proteins regulated by the Ca2+-CaM complex. One of these...
