The present study describes the morphological characteristics of black howler monkey (Alouatta caraya) ovarian follicles. One ovary of an adult healthy black howler monkey was collected and processed for light and electron microscopy. Primordial, primary, secondary, tertiary and pre-ovulatory follicles were evaluated for their morphometrical aspects. The ovary of black howler monkey presented a distinct conformation with a uniform distribution of the follicles mostly in the peripheric cortex… CONTINUE READING
