Do changes in dietary chemistry during ontogeny affect digestive performance in adults of the herbivorous rodent Octodon degus?
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2008-11)
We characterize the flexibility in digestive performance in degus (Octodon degus) an herbivorous rodent. We tested the hypothesis that dietary and physiological-digestive flexibility are correlated. Degus were fed with ...
In vitro versus in vivo protein digestibility techniques for calculating PDCAAS (protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score) applied to chickpea fractions
(Elsevier B.V., 2016-11-01)
Seven different in vitro methods to determine the protein digestibility for chickpea proteins were considered and also the application of these methodologies for calculating PDCAAS (protein digestibility-corrected amino ...
Nutritive value and apparent digestibility of bee-collected and bee- stored pollen in the stingless bee, Scaptotrigona postica Latr. (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Meliponini)
(Elsevier B.V., 2000-01-01)
In Meliponini bees, pollen is stored inside the hive. We compared the nutritional value and apparent digestibility of bee-collected and bee-stored pollen of Scaptotrigona postica. The results showed no differences in ...
Morphology and Cyclic Activity of the Digestive Gland of Zidona dufresnei (Caenogastropoda: Volutidae)
(Institute of Malacology, 2015-04)
Zidona dufresnei is a carnivorous snail that plays an important role in the trophic web as a top predator. It is a threatened species due to high levels of fisheries exploitation. In this study, we describe the morphology ...
