Growth curves for females and males with and without genetically confirmed offspring (only animals that lived at least 60 days are included; body weight at pregnancy excluded). Each line depicts the growth curve of one individual. The dotted line reflects the default body weight of common vole (25 g) considered in the risk assessment [1]. The dotted ellipse denotes offspring borne late in the year which were too young to reproduce
