Abstract

We studied the annual reproductive and fat body cycles of the oviparous lizard Lacerta lepida in central Spain. Testicular recrudescence started in late summer and testes attained their maximal sizes during the following spring. Females exhibited ovarian growth during spring and most oviposited in July. Fat bodies of males were smallest during the mating period. Female fat body volumes declined during vitellogenesis. No significant decline of lipid stores was detected during the hibernation period (October-March).
