REBECCA J. BEAR is a PhD candidate at the Graduate School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Her long-standing interests in mammalian physiology, physiology of pregnancy, childbirth and labor, and human infant development began in her teens and have taken her through practice as a clinical veterinarian and most recently, postgraduate perinatal researcher. In particular, applying research principles to the
care of hospitalized preterm babies dominate her activities.

DAVID J. MELLOR is the Professor of Applied Physiology and Bioethics at the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences, Massey University, New Zealand. His 50 years of active research into fetal and neonatal physiology in Australia, Scotland, and New Zealand have provided insights into the survival and clinical management of a wide range of newborn mammals, among them human infants.
