Reproductive Technologies in Animals provides the most updated and comprehensive knowledge on the various aspects and applications of reproductive technologies in production animals as well as companion, wild, exotic, and laboratory animals and birds. The text synthesizes historical information and recent discoveries, while dealing with economical and geographical issues related to the implementation of the same technologies. It also presents the effects of reproductive technology implementation on animal welfare and the possible threat of pathogen transmission.

Reproductive Technologies in Animals is an important resource for academics, researchers, professionals in public and private animal business, and students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as it gives a full and detailed first-hand analysis of all species subjected to the use of reproductive technologies.

Key Features

  • Provides research from a team of scientists and researchers whose expertise spans all aspects of animal reproductive technologies
  • Addresses the use of reproductive technologies in a wide range of animal species
  • Offers a complete description and historical background for each species described
  • Discusses successes and failure as well as future challenges in reproductive technologies


Researchers and postgraduate students in animal production, animal science, and veterinary medicine
