Qualitative analysis of the development of endolymphatic sacs by a gecko lepidodactylus lugubris in french polynesia



Qualitative analysis of the development of endolymphatic sacs by a gecko lepidodactylus lugubris in french polynesia



Journal of Herpetology 23(4): 414-418



A qualitative investigation into calcium storage in the endolymphatic sacs was made in the unisexual/bisexual complex of the gecko Lepidodactylus lugubris in French Polynesia. Hypertrophy of the endolymphatic sacs was pronounced only in adult females and was strongly associated with the development of oviductal eggs. Significant differences in the size of the sacs found between island populations and between clones within islands were tentatively ascribed to variations in seasonality of oviposition.
