Reproductive and fat body cycles in the male lizard, Sceloporus undulatus, from Alabama, with comparisons of geographic variation.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The height of the breeding season (spermiogenesis and spermiation) occurred from March-May. Fat body masses increased in fall and decreased in spring soon after emergence from brumation. Loss of this stored energy is likely correlated with spring territorial and reproductive activities. -from Authors
