Abstract

Unilateral ovariectomy (removal of the left ovary) was performed on adult female Sceloporus occidentalis with quiescent ovaries. These animals, along with those that were sham-operated, were then placed in an environmental regimen (14L, 34°; 10D, 25°) that stimulated ovarian growth. Unilateral ovariectomy produced compensatory ovarian hypertrophy, which involved a doubling of the number of vitellogenic follicles and a slight increase in the number of previtellogenic follicles in the remaining ovary.
