The ad lib mating group was sacrificed 24 h from the onset of mating. A control group of inactivated (virgin, nonmale-exposed) females was also run. Oestrogen levels (reported as pg mg- 1 protein) and progesterone levels (reported as ng mg -1 protein) were measured by radioimmunoassay in the ovaries. Blood levels of progesterone (ng rnl- 1 serum) and various organ weights (standardized to 30 mg body weight) were also determined. Ovarian oestrogen levels and uterine weights were lower in inactivated females than in those exposed to a male (Fig.

The social interactions and mating patterns among male and female prairie voles will be described as a function of the social and sexual history of the animals being observed. In particular, time-lapse videotaping has been used to examine the copulatory (or in some cases, lack of copulatory) interactions among unfamiliar pairs and also among animals from known family groups. These observations also allow an analysis of the nature of incest avoidance and offspring suppression in this species. 2 Monogamy in the Prairie Vole It has been estimated that only about 3% of mammals have a monogamous mating system (Kleiman 1977).

The average lordosis frequency was 38 and the duration of the mating ranged from a few minutes to, in rare cases, 16 or more h. When females in postpartum oestrus were tested with novel males (in those cases in which they did mate), the lordosis frequency was even lower (Fig. 7) than with an established partner, suggesting that the duration of the mating episode is primarily a function of the female rather than the male. Postpartum oestrous mating may be slightly inhibited by the presence of an oestrous daughter as well.
