Abstract

Changes in vaginal cytology during the ovarían cycle of 11 owl monkeys (Aotus nancymae and A. vociférans) were examined through analysis of vaginal smears with May grüwal - Giemsa stain, collected every second day during a ló day period. Serum progesterone levéis were determined by radioinmunoassay on four occasions over a 14 day period. Changes in the proportions ofepithelial cells related to ovarían function were observed in 8 of 10 females. Squamous cells quickly increased to 70 % while serum progesterone levéis were basal. Vaginal cytology from a pregnant female is also reported.
