Reproduction and growth of the tundra hare (Lepus othus)



Reproduction and growth of the tundra hare (Lepus othus)



Journal of Mammalogy 58(1): 53-57



Data are presented on the growth and reproduction of the tundar hare (L. othus Merriam) from the Clarence Rhode National Wildlife Refuge, western Alaska [USA]. The estimated average growth rate for juvenile hares is 37.2 g/day over a 102 day growth period from a birth weight of 100 g to a minimum adult weight of 3900 g. The single annual litter averages 6.3 (N = 10). A conception period from April 13-29 and a parturition period from May 29-June 4 are deduced from estimated embryo ages.
