BACKGROUND Captive breeding programs for endangered amphibian species often utilize exogenous hormones for species that are difficult to breed. The purpose of our study was to compare the efficacy of two different hormones at various concentrations on sperm production, quantity and quality over time in order to optimize assisted breeding. METHODS Male American toads (Anaxyrus americanus) were divided into three separate treatment groups, with animals in each group rotated through different… CONTINUE READING
