Endocrine correlates of male reproductive behaviour in terrestrial megaherbivores
MRI seminar room (Botany 1-5)
11:00 to 12:00
Terrestrial megaherbivores are a select group of mammals that exceed 1000 kg in mass as adults and currently consist of 9 species from the families Giraffidae, Elephantidae, and Rhinocerotidae. In this presentation, the new Director of the Mammal Research Institute, Prof. Andre Ganswindt, will illustrate the reproductive tactics of African and Asian elephants as well as Giraffes by describing the physical and behavioural characteristics and endocrine correlates associated with the different defined forms of male sexual activity.
