Summary The effects of short‐term confinement (24 hours) on the plasma levels of gonadal hormones and corticosterone have been evaluated in Rana esculenta, which is widely used in amphibian reproductive physiology studies. A 24‐h confinement has been chosen since this is the time that usually elapses from frog capture to utilization. Although short confinement does not influence the morphological aspect of gonads, genital tracts (oviduct in the female) and secondary sexual characters (thumbpads… CONTINUE READING
