The succession in time and space of specific germ cell associations, denoted as spermatogenic stages, is a typical feature of mammalian spermatogenesis. The arrangement of these stages is either single stage (one spermatogenic stage per tubular cross-section) or multistage (more than one spermatogenic stage per tubular cross-section). It has been proposed that the single-stage versus multistage arrangement is related to spermatogenic efficiency and that the multistage arrangement is typical for… CONTINUE READING
