Many wild species exhibit seasonal cycles of testicular and adrenal functions suggesting important interrelationships between the two. However, data on desert rodents are very scarce. We investigated the pituitary adrenal (PA) axis activity of the Libyan jird from the Sahara desert, during the breeding and the non-breeding seasons. We explored, during the breeding season, the effects induced by orchidectomy and testosterone replacement (75 μg/40 μl sesame oil/100g BW). We found that the PA axis… CONTINUE READING
