Abstract
The female genital tract and some associated endocrine glands pituitary, thyroid and adrenals of 32 normal cycling mature ewes of the Nigerian Dwarf Sheep were subjected to histometric analysis. The results showed that the tissues of the tract undergo cyclical changes and except in the vagina, maximum height of the luminal epithelium occurred during oestrus. Normal physiological values 'of the various tissues of the tubular genitalia were established in this sheep ecotype.
