Day 3. 9.2.09 Female Reproductive Anatomy -one of the greatest areas of diversity in animals is locomotion- some fly, some walk. The greatest diversity in animal reproduction is in the female -the boar ejaculates into the cervix, whereas ejaculation in other animals is in the vagina START - Ovaries -female reproductive organ that makes the gametes -has follicle(s), and a corpus luteum(cl) -when a follicle ovulates, it becomes a corpus luteum -if you have 4 embryos in a dish, you should have 4 corpus luteums -every corpus luteum should have an embryo -#corpus luteums = #embryo = #follicles -follicles make estrogen.

-If you have a big corpus luteum, you will not have many follicles (they don’t get to a sufficient size though) -once a female goes through puberty, you will find follicles for the rest of her life -all through pregnancy, the female has follicles, she just doesn’t ovulate - Infundibulum : Insures that the follicles are captured by the female reproductive tract -it is the catcher’s mitt of the female reproductive system -you can hardly see it in most species
