Eighty seven pairs of functional ovaries, nine pain of ovaries from pregnant animals, 12 pain of inactive ovaries and l4 pairs of senile atrophic ovaries were utilized to obtain weight and dimensions of .the ovaries, follicles and corpora lutea. There was highly significant differcnce in weight between senile atrophic .ovaries and inactive ovaries and senile atrophic ovaries and ovaries in both the follicular and the luteal phases of the cycle. Weight of the ovaries in both follicular and luteal phases of the cycle was significantly higher than those of inactive ovaries. However there was no significant difference in weight between ovaries in follicular and luteal phase, of cycle and between right and left ovaries both in follicular and luteal phases of oestrous cycle.. There was no significant difference in the dimension of left and right ovaries and also between ovaries in follicular and luteal phase of cycle. Senile atrophic ovaries were significantly larger than ovaries in both follicular and luteal phases of the cycle and inactive ovaries.
