Behavioural cues of reproductive status in seahorses Hippocampus abdominalis


Whittington, Camilla M; Musolf, Kerstin; Sommer, Stefan; Wilson, Anthony B (2013). Behavioural cues of reproductive status in seahorses Hippocampus abdominalis. Journal of Fish Biology, 83(1):220-226.

Abstract

A method is described to assess the reproductive status of male Hippocampus abdominalis on the basis of behavioural traits. The non-invasive nature of this technique minimizes handling stress and reduces sampling requirements for experimental work. It represents a useful tool to assist researchers in sample collection for studies of reproduction and development in viviparous syngnathids, which are emerging as important model species.
