    Tom H E Mason
    School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, United Kingdom
    Am Nat 180:823-30. 2012
    ..Our results support this hypothesis, which suggests that intraseasonal variation in RE may be an adaptive life-history trait for males as well as females...
  4. pmc Does litter size variation affect models of terrestrial carnivore extinction risk and management?
    Eleanor S Devenish-Nelson
    School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Durham University, Durham, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 8:e58060. 2013
    ..Since data on intraspecific litter size variation are often sparse, it is unclear what probability distribution should be used to describe the pattern of litter size variation for multiparous carnivores...

    Miranda L Davis
    School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, County Durham, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 7:e47894. 2012
