  • At the outset it should be stressed that the published data available for GHGE for food and drinks is very limited and the values are only approximate. Values can vary between different sources of data, with inconsistencies partly explained by differences in the assumptions made in the calculations and methodologies used to estimate GHGEs. While this makes it difficult to combine datasets, the general hierarchy of GHGEs from different food groups is reasonably consistent.

  • The distinctive features of reproduction in squirrels are the lack of allometric influences on the duration of reproductive investment; the strong allometric influences on offspring mass; and a trade-off between number and size of young, suggesting an important developmental component to reproduction. Lengths of gestation and lactation do not vary with body size but neonatal and weaning mass do. Apparently, the major constraint on reproduction in squirrels is not resources per se (food, calories, minerals, or water) but rather the length of time such resources are available.
