  • Urinary hormone profiles, determined by means of radioimmunoassays, were aligned with changes in mating behaviour and vaginal morphology and cytology during the ovarian cycles of adult, female lesser bushbabies (Galago moholi), a prosimian species. Intromission occurred in all seven females, 2.0 +/- 1.1 days (mean +/- SEM, median = 0) after the occurrence of vaginal opening, and lasted for 4.1 +/- 0.7 days. Three females subsequently gave birth. Vaginal swelling and labial reddening were… CONTINUE READING
