Abstract:

The present investigation was aimed to observe the biochemical changes, caused by short day (8L. 16D) and long day (16L. 8D) photoperiods in ovotestis of a terrestrial stylommatophoran slug, Semperula maculate. The results showed a significant increase in cholesterol contents after exposure to short day photoperiods when active gametogenesis took place. On the other hand the concentration of cholesterol was lowered after the exposure of slugs to long day photoperiods when the cessation of gametogenesis occurred. The observations indicated some relationship of photoperiods with the gametogenesis in this slug which have been elaborately discussed.


Keywords: Cholesterol, Ovotestis, Photoperiod, S.maculata.
