    • Abstract


      Variation in the ovariole number appears significant in providing indices between the total body length of the females and the number of ovarioles. Studies on the post embryonic development of ovaries in acridids being very much restricted, an attempt has been made to correlate the changes in weight of the ovary during post embryonic development, with the stage of development, as well as to establish the correlation coefficient between the weight of the ovary and length of the ovarioles, inEyprepocnemis alacris alacris (Serville).
