  • Scanning electron and light microscopic studies reveal significant changes in the endometrial histophysiology of the soft-shelled turtle Lissemys punctata punctata during its seasonal reproductive cycle. Scanning electron microscopy shows the entire oviductal mucosa to be only slightly folded throughout the non-breeding period (regressive, quiescent, preparatory and recrudescent phases). With the onset of the breeding phase, the mucosa shows extensive foldings and convolutions. The adluminal… CONTINUE READING
