Effect of Sex Steroids on the Accessory Reproductive Organs of Loris

Naturevolume 193pages696697 (1962) | Download Citation



WHILE examining the structure of the pituitary gland of the slender loris (Loris tardigradus lydekkerianus Cabr.), we injected sex hormones into the animals to examine the reaction of the pituitary gonadotrophs to them. During these experiments, certain changes in the gonads and accessory reproductive structures were noticed and we are reporting on those of the latter as there appears to be no record of the same in Lemuroidea.
