  2. Cyclic variation of the oviduct structure of <em>Boulengerula taitana</em>, an oviparous species of Gymnophiona: morphological changes, proliferation and apoptosis

    Cyclic variation of the oviduct structure of <em>Boulengerula taitana</em>, an oviparous species of Gymnophiona: morphological changes, proliferation and apoptosis

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    Functioning of the amphibian oviduct is the subject of many studies, but detailed understanding of caecilian reproduction exists for very few species. In this study, a description is made of morphological changes of the oviduct of the caecilian Boulengerula taitana...
