Sample text

It seems possible that in some species the role of photoperiod in the entire annual cycle may be one of only moderate monitoring of the time of occurrence and frequency of the phases in the annual cycle. In other cases, the occurrence of the annual cycle, that is, the alternation of periods of activity and inactivity is dependent on the annual photoperiodic cycle. Much work remains to be done before we can define precisely the role of day length in the regulation of the annual cycle in most species.

An internal reproductive rhythm has been inferred from the inability of four months of drastically reduced day length to prevent final maturity in Phoxinus, although spermatogenesis was slightly and oogenesis markedly delayed (Bullough, 1940). This delay in the onset of reproductive maturity is similar to that demonstrated in birds, and it seems likely that in fishes the function of the daily photoperiod in the progressive phase is again one of control of rate of pituitary activity. Experiments similar to those performed on birds will be necessary before this question can be answered for fishes.

32 ALBERT WOLFSON Exposure to long photoperiods experimentally may possibly induce refractoriness and the need for a preparatory phase before a second cycle can begin. On the other hand, the response in this species may be like that in Quelea in which refractoriness does not appear to exist. Experiments with juvenile and immature birds in which they were treated with 16-hour days showed no indication of a postjuvenal refractoriness to light such as occurs in most immature birds in the north temperate zone (Miller, 1959b).
