MULTIENNIAL REPRODUCTION IN FEMALES OF A VIVIPAROUS, TEMPERATE-ZONE SKINK, TILIQUA NIGROLUTEA
Reproductive frequency in captive and wild-caught female Tiliqua nigrolutea was examined over five consecutive reproductive seasons. Reproductive frequency (0.38 ± 0.035) was clearly different from an annual pattern of 1.0 (i.e. all females reproducing every year). Individual females did not reproduce every year, but "skipped" seasons were staggered such that a proportion of the population produced a clutch each season. Skipped reproductive opportunities are attributed to a combination of adoi:10.1655/0018-0831(2002)058[0407:mrifoa]2.0.co;2 fatcat:2hsdrfxrtrh5tgz2uym3xqkwde
