The growth of the follicle and oocyte in the Indian gerbil (Tatera indica) was a continuous process. The relationship between follicle and oocyte or its nucleus was log linear, represented by the equation logY =a +b logX.A linear relationship (Y =a +bX)existed between the oocyte and its nucleus. The number of stages I and II follicles varied significantly during the oestrous cycle. Maximum percentage of stage I follicles was observed during oestrus and metoestrus, while stage II follicles were… 


Follicular growth and kinetics during the estrous cycle, pregnancy and postpartum in the Indian mole rat (Bandicota bengalensis).
Follicular growth and kinetics were studied in detail in the ovaries of the Indian mole rat during various stages of the estrous cycle; days 7, 12, 15, 19, 21 of pregnancy; and day 2 postpartum.
Histomorphic changes in the ovary during the estrous cycle of a wild rat, Bandicota bengalensis
Histomorphic changes in the ovary of Bandicota bengalensis were studied during various stages of the estrous cycle, finding the number of atretic follicles was highest at diestrus and lowest at estrus.
Morphometric studies on ovarian follicles and corpora lutea during the oestrous cycle in the mouse.
It is shown that Corpora lutea took 4 successive oestrous cycles from the time of formation to complete disintegration, and atretic follicles bearing oocytes in the resting phase were rarely encountered, showing that few follicles underwent atresia at this stage.
Follicular growth patterns in the house rat (Rattus rattus).
A histomorphometrical study has been made of the ovarian follicles in the house rat during estrous cycle, pregnancy and after treatment with FSH, LH and estrogen, providing a better method of statistical evaluation for follicular growth patterns in normal and hormone treated animals.

The extension of atresia in the various volume classes of follicles during the oestrous cycle suggests that the follicles that ovulate were already present at an antral stage in the preceding cycle and needed two cycles for their growth to ovulation.
Follicular development in the infant human ovary.
The range of follicles and the pattern of oocyte growth in relation to follicle growth found in the ovary was independent of age during childhood and is discussed in the light of current concepts of gonadal and pituitary function during infancy and childhood.
The follicle population in the ovaries of two wild mice, Apodemus flavicollis and Apodemus sylvaticus
The follicle population of Apodemus flavicollis and that of A. sylvaticus were investigated throughout the year in the ovaries of three groups of females: females without corpora lutea, nonpregnant
The reproductive processes of certain mammals. II.—The size of the Graafian follicle at ovulation
The present paper is primarily concerned with the correlation between the size of ripe follicle and the body weight of the species of animal, but a second point is also included.
The Development and Morphology of the Gonads of the Mouse. Part III.--The Growth of the Follicles
The results show clearly, amongst other things, that the major part of the growth of the Graafian follicle takes place after the contained oocyte has attained its maximum size.
Ultrastructural features of ovarian interstitial tissue in a wild mouse, Apodemus flavicollis, at various reproductive stages, with a note on its histochemistry at the onset of the breeding period
In Apodemus flavicollis caught at the onset of the breeding season, interstitial tissue of the ovaries showed weak to moderate 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase
