The dose-response effect of testosterone propionate on six behavioral patterns was examined in the castrated male ring dove. There was no dose-response effect when all behaviors were compared on the 13th day, the last day of systemic injection. However, a discernible dose-response effect in two behavioral patterns (Bow-coos and Nest-coos) was found on the day when maximal response was manifested. The latency (days) of maximal response differs from one behavioral pattern to the next, but is generally constant for each behavioral pattern at all dose levels.
