Advances in the phenology of organisms are often attributed to climate change, but alternatively, may reflect a publication bias towards advances and may be caused by environmental factors unrelated to climate change. Both factors are investigated using the breeding dates of 25 long-term studied populations of Ficedula flycatchers across Europe. Trends in(More)
An accumulation of monoamines is found in the adult eminentia mediana and infundibular stem, close to the capillaries of the primary plexus, where they seem to be stored mainly in closely packed delicate varicose fibres, often with swollen endings, “droplets”. The first traces of monoamines are visible in the embryonic eminentia of fetuses from the last(More)
The organization of the system of perivascular space around the capillaries in the neurohypophysis was studied in the adult and developing laboratory mouse by the use of histological silver impregnation and electron microscopical techniques. In the median eminence short and long extensions, arising mainly from the shallow space around capillary loops of the(More)
By means of a highly sensitive and specific histochemical method for the demonstration of certain biogenic monoamines a plexus of nerves containing a primary catecholamine has been demonstrated in the pars intermedia of the toad, Bufo arenarum. These nerves are restricted in distribution to the part of the gland which contains colloid vesicles (stored MSH(More)
With the aid of lesion experiments and the Falck-Hillarp fluorescence technique, it is shown that the aminergic nerves of the hypophysis, including pars distalis, originate in the caudal hypothalamus and reach the gland via a fibre tract in the floor of tuber cinereum. However, some contribution to the eminentia mediana from the preoptic area could not be(More)
Rat fetuses were subjected to selective hypophysectomy in utero on day 16, 17 or 18 of gestation and inspected on day 22 (the day before birth). The survival rate of fetuses operated on day 17 and 18 was about 20 and 50%, respectively. Losses were mostly caused by the surgery preceding the removal of the pituitary, and no significant survival-promoting(More)
