          Abstract

          The morphometric study of the hypophysis, of the subfornical organ and of the pineal gland of 41 Rodents and one Lagomorphe shows that the anterior lobe of the hypophysis as well as the total hypophysis are better correlated to body weight than to the volume of the hypothalamus, while it is the contrary for the pars nervosa. The volume of the intermediate lobe varies very much from one species to another for the same body weight. The high value of the allometry coefficient of the pineal gland on somatic weight (1.25) is due to the fact that the heavy Rodents of our temperate climates have a large epiphysis while the small african Rodents possess a small pineal gland.
