Key Features

  • A complete, essential and up to date reference for research scientists working on vertebrate hormones and reproduction - and on animlals as models in human reproductive research
  • Covers the endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, physiology, behaviour and anatomy of vertebrate reproduction
  • Structured coverage of the major themes for all five vertebrate groups allows a consistent treatment for all
  • Special chapters elaborate on features specific to individual vertebrate groups and to comparative aspects, similarities and differences between them

Readership

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

About the Editors

David Norris Editor

Dr. David Norris has done research in environmental endocrinology and neuroendocrinology for more than 50 years. Dr. Norris is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado. He received his bachelor’s degree from Baldwin-Wallace College and his Ph.D. in 1966 from the University of Washington. Dr. Norris has worked in the area of forensic botany with Dr. Jane H. Bock, since 1982, primarily on developing the use of plant cells in the gastrointestinal tract to aid in homicide investigations. Dr. Norris and Dr. Bock have been involved in investigations in numerous states as well as throughout the State of Colorado. Dr. Norris has been certified as an expert witness in this area for the State of Colorado. With Dr. Bock, Dr. Norris also has consulted on other botanical evidence for criminal investigations. He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences in 2014.
