Semen cryopreservation in black-footed (Spheniscus demersus) and gentoo (Pygoscelis papua) penguins: Effects of thawing temperature on semen characteristics. Anim Reprod Sci. 2019;200:60-66 pubmed publisher
    ..Cryopreserved black-footed penguin semen should be thawed after cryopreservation at 5 ºC, while that of gentoo penguins can be thawed at either 5 or 37 ºC. ..

Use of the hypo-osmotic swelling test and aniline blue staining to improve the evaluation of seasonal sperm variation in native Spanish free-range poultry. Poult Sci. 2009;88:2661-9 pubmed publisher
    ..The results show that high semen quality is associated with long day photoperiods. Extreme heat or cold appear to exert a negative influence on sperm quality. ..

    ..The present results suggest that genetic introgression influences the reproductive variables of the red-legged partridge. ..

    ..The maximum GLY and EY concentrations tolerated by the rooster sperm were 0.75% and 7.5%, respectively. ..

Effect of shortening the prefreezing equilibration time with glycerol on the quality of chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica), ibex (Capra pyrenaica), mouflon (Ovis musimon) and aoudad (Ammotragus lervia) ejaculates. Anim Reprod Sci. 2016;171:121-8 pubmed publisher
    ..While the equilibration time for chamois sperm might be shortened, this appears not to be the case for all ungulates. ..

    ..This procedure would, therefore, be a useful means of removing seminal plasma from goat semen and obtaining greater quality sperm for insemination purposes. ..

    ..This finding, plus that of the existence of four sperm subpopulations with different morphometric characteristics, may be important in the future development of cryopreservation protocols for falcon sperm. ..

    ..Neither CA treatment in October nor TP administration in April affected the studied sperm variables. By contrast, CA treatment plus artificial long days in autumn had a negative effect on sperm motility and sperm morphology. ..
