dc.description.abstract…In this study, we investigate the role of dietary phytoestrogens in this reproductive phenomenon by characterizing activation of southern white rhinoceros (SWR) estrogen receptors (ESRs) 1 and 2 by diet items from nine North American institutions and comparing female SWR fertility to total diet estrogenicity. Of the diet items tested, alfalfa hay and soy and alfalfa-based commercial pellets were found to be the most potent activators of SWR ESRs.…
