Regulation by Photoperiod of Seasonal Changes in Body Mass and Reproductive Function in Gray Mouse Lemurs (Microcebus murinus): Differential Responses by Sex

Abstract

Microcebus murinus exhibits highly seasonal biological rhythms to cope with extreme seasonality in availability of resources. To study the role of daylength on seasonal changes in body mass and reproductive function, we exposed male and female gray mouse lemurs to natural, constant, or alternating light cycles for 2 years under constant environmental… (More)
