"Essential Reproduction" provides a completely integrated and multidisciplinary approach to the study of reproduction. The book is for all students taking courses in reproductive physiology, whether in medicine or in science.
The book spans the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, behavioral science, endocrinology, immunology, genetics and clinical science. It draws out the general, fundamental principles of reproduction, and makes clear the differences between species in relevant areas - often in tabular form or as illustrations for clarity of presentation.
The new edition of this popular text is in full color and has been revised and updated. A new chapter on gender and sexuality is now included.
