Dimensional characteristics and proportions of live spermatozoa in permanent nigrosin—eosin preparations from the semen samples of Murrah buffalo bulls were studied in different seasons. Between bulls, all the characteristics varied significantly. Between seasons, all the characteristics, except length of head and mid-piece, varied significantly. Environmental temperature and humidity both appeared to influence the dimensional and enumeration characteristics of the spermatozoa. The percentage of live spermatozoa decreased with increase in air temperature and humidity.
Reproduction is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
