Short note Size Relationship between Growing Oocytes and Their Nuclei in Two Gekkonine Lizards P.L. Duda and M. Annalakshmi Department of Biosciences, University of Jammu, Jammu, J. & K. State, INDIA The role played by the nucleus in growth and differentiation of oocytes in lower chor- dates is well documented (CASPERSSON, 1950; RAO, 1959; MAZIA, 1969). All such studies ask for the determination of changes in the nuclear size at different stages of growth of the oocytes to establish such a role. No account of dimensional changes in a growing oocyte correlated with changes in its nucleus is available for an amniote and to the best of our knowledge, none for a reptile. This communication describes the metrical rela- tionship between growing oocytes and their nuclei in two gekkonine lizards, Hemidacty- lus flaviviridis and H. brooki, from India with the aim of determining the extent of the influence of the nucleus over the growth and differentiation of the oocytes of these lizards. Material and Methods Twelve mature females of Hemidactylus j7aviviridis of 65 mm to 75 mm snout-vent length and fourteen of H. brooki of 40 mm to 50 mm snout-vent length, were collected 232 randomly from the
