Table 1 Approximate gestation length, embryo crown-rump length (C-R) at birth, and duration of lactation in three species of nectarivorous Pteropodids. Data on approximate crown-rump length at birth are from this study, as are the estimates of the duration of gestation and lactation for R. amplexicaudatus. Estimates of gestation and lactation for M. minimus are from Start [26]; estimates for E. spelaea are based on Bhat et al. [56].
