Description

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.

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

Dr. David O. Norris (B.S., Baldwin Wallace University, 1961; PhD 1966, University of Washington) was a professor at the University of Colorado for 46 years where he studied environmental endocrinology of fishes and amphibians and taught general biology, endocrinology, human physiology, histology, vertebrate biology, and forensic biology. His endocrine research interests involve the role of natural and anthropogenic factors (pollutants) that operate through the brain and pituitary to influence thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive physiology that in turn affect development, sexual differentiation, reproduction, and aging. He retired from CU in 2012 and currently is Professor Emeritus of the Department of Integrative Physiology. Dr. Norris also does research in forensic botany and consults with law enforcement groups on homicides and other crimes throughout the USA and in several other countries He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Dr. Norris has published more than 150 scientific papers and abstracts in environmental endocrinology and forensic botany and is the senior author on several books including Vertebrate Endocrinology (6th edition, Academic Press, 2020), Endocrine Disruption: Implications for Health of Wildlife and Humans (Oxford University Press, 2005), a five-volume work on Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates (Academic Press, 2011) and Forensic Plant Science (Academic Press, 2016).
