The fourth volume in a work which aims to emphasize the importance of comparative endocrinological studies to clinical and biomedical research and which bridges the gap between comparative and medical endocrinologists. This volume is a comprehensive treatment of reproductive endocrinology by leading authorities in the field. All aspects of the natural reproductive cycle are covered, and mechanisms of controlling reproduction are discussed. Topics discussed include the structure, activity, and mechanisms of action of hormones in the brain, pituitary gland and the gonad, the mechanisms of sex determination, and methods for controlling the reproductive system.
