A unique feature of this book is the focus on large, domestic animals. Previous editions were considered the "Bible" of reproductive physiology. It covers basic, large animal reproductive physiology, provides species-specific information and is suitable as a textbook for upper-division courses.


Advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in animal science and endocrinology
