Essential Reproduction provides an integrated approach to the study of mammalian reproduction, spanning the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, endocrinology, immunology, genetics, and obstetrics and gynaecology. It offers the ideal text for undergraduates in medicine and veterinary medicine, as well as zoology. The book includes a discussion on all aspects of male reproduction, female cyclicity, pregnancy, parturition, post natal care and fertility control. This edition has been completely updated and the chapter on the regulation of gonadal function has been rewritten. It is strongly scientific, taking evidence from both human and other mammalian species.

SUBJECT: Essential Reproduction provides an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to the study of reproduction for students taking courses in reproductive physiology in a wide range of subjects, from medicine and midwifery to veterinary medicine and bioscience. The book spans the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, behavioural 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. There is a strong emphasis on clear structure and layout, and a good use of pedagogical features such as Key Points, Learning Points, and Further Reading. Reviews of previous editions "...this is an excellent book which can be recommended highly as a standard undergraduate text, but which will also prove a pleasurable read to many more senior endocrinologists." The Endocrinologist "I have rarely enjoyed reading a book so much and would strongly recommend it to all trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists and to all undergraduate medical and science students requiring a thorough introduction to human reproduction and to all requiring insight into the miracle of reproduction in man." South African Medical Journal "The authors teach reproduction at Cambridge University and this superbly produced book is written for medical, veterinary, and science students." British Medical Journal "All the major areas of reproduction are covered from sexual differentiation, regulation of gonadal function, action of steroids, implantation and establishment of placentation, maternal recognition and support of pregnancy, fetal physiology, events associated with parturition, lactation and maternal behaviour." British Journal of Obstetrics & GynaecologyFrom the Back Cover:
This book provides a completely integrated approach to the study of mammalian reproduction, spanning the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, endocrinology, immunology, genetics and obstetrics and gynaecology. It draws out the general fundamental points common to reproduction in most mammalian species. However, it does not ignore the differences between species in some areas; often pointing these out in tabular form as an illustration for clarity of presentation. Where the fundamentals differ, an explicit discussion is given in the text. This new edition has been updated and revised to take account of the changing profile of hormones involved in reproduction, covering general principles of hormone action in the widest sense, including new data on growth factors. The new edition will also be in the large "essentials" format with a second colour throughout, and a substantial amount of completely new artwork.
