A study was undertaken to examine sperm morphometry in relation to sperm velocity and sperm longevity in the redside dace Clinostomus elongatus. There was significant between-male variance in sperm size and shape metrics (total sperm length, sperm head length, flagellum length and sperm head length to width ratio) and positive relationships were found between these morphometrics and sperm velocity. There were no significant relationships found between sperm morphometry and sperm longevity, nor… CONTINUE READING
