Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates - Vol 5 book cover

Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates - Vol 5


This series of volumes represents a comprehensive and integrated treatment of reproduction in vertebrates from fishes of all sorts through mammals. It is designed to provide a readable, coordinated description of reproductive basics in each group of vertebrates as well as an introduction to the latest trends in reproductive research and our understanding of reproductive events. Whereas each chapter and each volume is intended to stand alone as a review of that topic or vertebrate group, respectively, the volumes are prepared so as to provide a thorough topical treatment across the vertebrates. Terminology has been standardized across the volumes to reduce confusion where multiple names exist in the literature, and a comprehensive glossary of these terms and their alternative names is provided.

Research and Post-Graduate scientists studying non-human vertebrate physiology, hormones and reproductive biology. Animal ScientistsReproductive Physiologists using animals as models for human reproductive researchLibraries and labs in vertebrate physiology, endocrinology and reproductive biology.
