  1. Annual variation of ovarian structures of <em>Boulengerula taitana</em> (Loveridge 1935), a Kenyan caecilian

    Annual variation of ovarian structures of <em>Boulengerula taitana</em> (Loveridge 1935), a Kenyan caecilian

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    The Kenyan caecilian, Boulengerula taitanus inhabits a climate characterised by two distinct dry and wet seasons, and a single thermal minimum in June. It is oviparous with direct development and a remarkable dermatophagous maternal care, but the female reproductive cycle...

    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...
