Reproductive effects of intraperitoneal transmitter implants in river otters



Reproductive effects of intraperitoneal transmitter implants in river otters



Journal of Wildlife Management 50.1: 92-94



Data on 7 instrumented adult female river otters (Lutra canadensis ) from 3 study areas in western North America were used to evaluate the effects on intraperitoneal radio transmitter implants on reproductive performance. Based on our observations, all stages of the breeding cycle can proceed successfully with a radio package implanted in the abdominal cavity.
