Glossary for Lama glama
- Animal population density
- Number of animals in a population relative to space.
- Basal metabolic rate
- Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the amount of energy expended daily by humans and other animals at rest. Rest is defined as existing in a neutrally temperate environment while in the post-absorptive state.
- Body length (VT)
- The distance from point to point along the longest axis of the body of an organism.
- Body mass
- The amount of matter in the body of an organism.
- Body temperature
- The degree of heat in the body of a living organism, temperature is measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter, expressed in terms of units or degrees designated on a standard scale.
- Clutch/brood/litter size
- Single birth offspring quantity. The proportion or number of offspring produced from a single pregnancy (mammals) or ovulation (fish) or nesting (birds).
- Degrees Celsius
- A region rendered barren or partially barren by environmental extremes, especially by low rainfall.
- Diet breadth
- Number of dietary categories eaten by an organism.
- Fossorial and/or ground dwelling only
- An organism that spends most of its time on the ground or underground.
- Gestation period duration
- The length of time between when a fertilized egg implants in the wall of the uterus and the birth of offspring.
- The natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population.
- Habitat. (2013, August 9). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 19:01, August 14, 2013, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Habitat&oldid=567783959
- Habitat breadth
- Number of habitat layers used by an organism
- An animal that eats mainly plants or parts of plants.
- Individuals per square kilometer
- A unit of population density.
- Kilograms. A mass unit which is equal to the mass of the International Prototype Kilogram kept by the BIPM at Svres, France.
- Litters per year
- Number of litters per female per year
- Meters. A length unit which is equal to the length of the path traveled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299 792 458 of a second.
- A mountain rising from the ocean seafloor that does not reach to the water's surface (sea level), and thus is not an island. Typically formed from volcanoes that rise abruptly and are usually found rising from a seafloor of 1,000 - 4,000 meters depth. Independent features that rise to at least 1,000 meters above the seafloor.
- Onset of fertility
- The age at which an organism develops the ability to produce live offspring.
- Per year
- A frequency rate of occurrences of something within a period of time equal to three hundred sixty-five days.
- An elevated and comparatively level expanse of land.
- Population group size
- Number of individuals in a group that spends the majority of their time in a 24 hour cycle together
- Prenatal development duration
- The duration of the development from fertilized, deposited or implanted egg to hatching/birth. Corresponds to egg incubation duration in oviparous animals and to gestation period duration in viviparous animals.
- Area covered with low-growing or stunted perennial vegetation and usually not mixed with trees.
- A large expanse of saline water usually connected with an ocean.
- Shrubland biome
- A shrubland biome is a terrestrial biome which includes, across its entire spatial extent, dense groups of shrubs.
- Degree of terrestriality of an organism.
- Total life span
- The full period of time from birth to death of an organism.
- Trophic level
- The position an organism occupies in a food chain.
- A power unit which is equal to the power used when work is done at the rate of 1 joule per second.
- Weaning age
- Age when primary nutritional dependency on the mother ends and independent foraging begins to make a major contribution to the offspring’s energy requirements.
- A physical quality inhering in a bearer that has mass near a gravitational body.
- Land having a cover of trees, shrubs, or both.
