Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Result of melatonine treatments and regulation of light have been summarized in case of carnivorous fur animals. As a result of the experiments carried out in the investigated animal species (Canadian minks, silver foxes, polar foxes and fox hybrids), the fur became mature 1 to 6 weeks earlier due to the treatment. Quality of the fur did not worse in case of adult animals, however the treatment of growing animals caused differences in the quality of fur (Scanblack mink, hybrids of foxes). Longer than natural lighting delayed while the shorter one accelerated the maturation of the fur. Decrease of the intensity of lighting also accelerated the development of winter fur. In case of the simultaneous lighting and melatonine treatment, the role of melatonine treatment was the determinant.
