The Duration of Egg Transport and Its Regulation in Mammals
The literature dealing with egg transport has grown considerably during the last decade and excellent recent reviews are available (Blandau, 1969; Pauerstein et al., 1974). Rather than cover the subject extensively, an attempt will be made here to discuss a single aspect of egg transport in mammals: its duration.
