This paper is an attempt to review in a comprehensive manner the reproduction in Mustelidae, based mainly on our own experience of breeding and investigating in captivity various Mustelidae species, mostly of European and Asian origin. Literature data on reproduction in other Mustelidae species used as reference. 
CAPTIVE REPRODUCTION OF THE NEOTROPICAL OTTER IN THE SANTA FE ZOOLOGICAL PARK IN MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA
Knowledge regarding reproduction of Lontra longicaudis is lacking. We present the first experience of Neotropical river otters born in captivity in Colombia. Of three parturitions registered, onlyExpand
Conservation of the European mink (Mustela lutreola): focus on reproduction and reproductive technologies.
TLDR
The reasons for the disappearance of European mink are reviewed and results of past conservation efforts based on captive breeding and reintroduction programmes are critically evaluated in the broad context of modern concepts of conservation genetics and reproductive biology. Expand
Reproductive performance of otters Lutra lutra (Linnaeus, 1758) in Eastern Germany: low reproduction in a long-term strategy
TLDR
The reproductive status of female otters (Lutra lutra) was determined from an examination of 518 carcasses collected from Eastern Germany between 1950 and 2001, finding Reproductively active females show a significantly higher body condition than non-reproductive females. Expand
Reproduction and advances in reproductive studies in carnivores.
TLDR
Although carnivores are comprised of 19 families, they will only focus their attention on four taxonomic groups, including felids, canids, ursids and mustelids, with emphasis on species diversity in reproductive mechanisms. Expand
Demographic structure of three riparian mustelid species in Spain
TLDR
Age estimation of three mustelid species with similar body size was performed in Northern Spain, of high value for understanding the demographic processes of the populations and particularly for conservation and management decisions for these species. Expand
BREEDING ACTIVITIES OF Lutra perspicillata IN BANGLADESH
TLDR
It has been found that the weight of the newborns decreased after birth until the second week and then increased gradually, and the number of Cubs opened the eyes in 4 to 5 weeks and started to take solid food at 7 to 8 weeks. Expand
Genome assembly of the tayra (Eira barbara, Mustelidae) and comparative genomic analysis reveal adaptive genetic variation in the subfamily Guloninae
TLDR
Many candidate loci that may be linked to species traits related to environment-specific challenges in their respective habitats are observed, including genes related to diet, body condition and reproduction. Expand
Mustela sibirica (Carnivora: Mustelidae)
Abstract: Mustela sibirica Pallas, 1773, commonly known as the Siberian weasel, is a widely distributed Palearctic musteline with natural populations ranging from west of the Ural Mountains ofExpand
Reproduction of the female ferret (Mustela putorius furo).
  • H. Lindeberg
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Reproduction in domestic animals = Zuchthygiene
  • 2008
TLDR
The domestic ferret is a seasonally polyoestrous species that exhibits a constant oestrus between late March and early August if they are not bred, but once ovulation is induced, either pregnancy or pseudopregnancy ensues. Expand
Are we able to affect the population structure of an invasive species through culling? A case study of the attempts to control the American mink population in the Northern Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
The proportion of individuals in each sex and age class remained constant over time, suggesting that despite control efforts, the age structure remained stable over the study period and age structure and sub-adult ratio might be useful indicators of successful trapping efforts. Expand

Delayed Implantation in the Stoat (Mustela mustela)
TLDR
There is a period of several months during which the blastocyst lies free in the uterine lumen before it becomes implanted, and this type of delayed development has been described in American weasels and martens and recently in the stoat. Expand
Mating systems and reproduction of mink
TLDR
These high rates indicate that the unmated female does not undergo cyclic heat periods; but when she has come into heat she is ready to mate at any time durin the breeding season. Expand
Effect of cryopreservation on the morphology of blastocysts of the ferret Mustela eversmanni
In this study, we have undertaken an attempt to use the technique of cryopreservation of a mustelid embryo-sing Mustela eversmanni as the experimental model. Ferret blastocysts were frozen withExpand
Ovarian follicular development in mink (Mustela vison).
TLDR
The ovaries of unmated mink contained substantial numbers of large, degenerating, luteinized, unruptured follicles, considered to represent the demise of large follicles that failed to receive an ovulatory stimulus. Expand
Gonadal function in mink under artificial photoperiods.
TLDR
The response of gonads to hCG injection at the beginning of puberty (November) was higher in males exposed toPhotoperiod I conditions and in females exposed to both photoperiods than in control animals. Expand
FERTILIZING LIFE OF FERRET SPERM IN THE FEMALE TRACT.
  • M. Chang
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of experimental zoology
  • 1965
TLDR
There is evidence that the fertility of sperm in the female tract was higher if a large number of sperm was deposited, and that the penetration of sperm into the egg facilitated the denudation of the egg. Expand
Heterologous anti-progesterone monoclonal antibody arrests early embryonic development and implantation in the ferret (Mustela putorius).
  • V. Rider, R. Heap
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of reproduction and fertility
  • 1986
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that the normal course of pregnancy is arrested as a result of antibody binding of progesterone in the circulation, presumably causing a decrease in the amount of prog estrogen available to target cell receptors, and that heterologous anti-progesterone antibody blocks normal cleavage and embryonic development at an early stage before cavitation. Expand
Profiles of oestradiol-17 beta and progesterone and follicular development during the reproductive season in mink (Mustela vison).
TLDR
It is indicated that, in female mink, peaks in oestradiol-17 beta coincide with the first mating as a result of the copulatory act and that unmated females appear to experience a luteal phase in the absence of ovulation. Expand
Plasma progesterone levels in the stoat.
TLDR
The progesterone levels seem to correlate with the state of corpus luteum activity although it is possible that plasma progestersone levels are influenced by an extraovarian source of progester one during the delayed implantation period. Expand
Prolactin: the hypophyseal factor that terminates embryonic diapause in mink.
TLDR
It is suggested that photoperiod acts through hypophyseal PRL secretion to terminate the delay that precedes implantation in mink, and PRL alone appeared not to be able to sustain luteal function. Expand
