The kinetics of the male gametogenesis during the pregonadal period, prespermatogenesis, and "early" spermatogenesis has been described in detail. Concerning spermatogenesis in the adult individual reference is made to the articles of Courot, Hochereau-de Reviers and Ortavant (1970) and of Clermont (1972). The comparison of female and male gametogenesis (Fig. 1) shows that the "gonia stage" (asterisks) of the female germ cells is limited to one proliferation wave only, whereas the "gonia stage" of the male germ cells consists of a first proliferation wave, comparable to that of oogonia, a preparative phase to initiate spermatogenesis, and a second proliferation wave with renewal and differentiation of the spermatogonia. Germ cells in the "gonia stage" are highly sensitive towards ionising radiation and cytostatic drugs.
