Table 5 The number of ovulating females, oocyte yield, oocyte mass and fertilisation success of oocytes obtained from females administered no, one or two priming injections of LHRHa (n = 8/treatment).

From: Effect of priming injections of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone on spermiation and ovulation in Gϋnther's Toadlet, Pseudophryne guentheri

  1. Fertilisation success was calculated as the proportion of embryos developing to neurulation. Data shown are mean ± SEM. Letters displayed are the result of Tukey Kramer HSD post-hoc tests, treatments that share a letter are not significantly different from each other.
