Since Materials and Methods were described in detail in our publications, this brief survey refers to the species, and those points are elaborated which have been neglected and might be helpful to the reader. The technical expertise grew over the years. The first part preferentially relies on classical morphological techniques to study functional morphology of intact ovaries.
