A quantitative study of the number of oocytes at different stages of development in the remaining ovary of unilaterally spayed rats has confirmed earlier results reported by Arai [1920a]. The ovary doubles in weight, and produces as many mature Graafian follicles as are found in the two ovaries of litter-mate controls. The number of primordial oocytes remains at the level normal for one ovary.
