Reproductive photoresponsiveness in male spiny mice from South Africa
(Zoological Society of London, 2012)
Many seasonally breeding mammals use changes in photoperiod as a reliable cue to time reproduction. Photoperiodic timing assists an animal in predicting annual environmental changes in its habitat and therefore, enables ...
Is reproduction of male eastern rock sengis (Elelphantulus myurus) from southern Africa affected by photoperiod
(NRC Research Press, 2016)
Many mammals use the change in day length to time physiological and behavioural activities on a seasonal basis. Particularly, mammals from temperate regions use photoperiod to regulate reproductive functions; however, ...
Ananlysis of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone-1 and kisspeptin neuronal systems in the nonphotoregulated seasonally breeding eastern rock elephant-shrew (Elephantulus myurus)
(Wiley Periodicals Inc., 2018)
Of the 18 sub-Saharan elephant-shrew species, only eastern rock elephant-shrews reproduce seasonally throughout their distribution, a process seemingly independent of photoperiod. The present study characterizes gonadal ...
