9780123749291: Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates - Vol 4

This series of volumes represents a comprehensive and integrated treatment of reproduction in vertebrates from fishes of all sorts through mammals. It is designed to provide a readable, coordinated description of reproductive basics in each group of vertebrates as well as an introduction to the latest trends in reproductive research and our understanding of reproductive events. Whereas each chapter and each volume is intended to stand alone as a review of that topic or vertebrate group, respectively, the volumes are prepared so as to provide a thorough topical treatment across the vertebrates. Terminology has been standardized across the volumes to reduce confusion where multiple names exist in the literature, and a comprehensive glossary of these terms and their alternative names is provided.

* A complete, essential and up to date reference for research scientists working on vertebrate hormones and reproduction - and on animlals as models in human reproductive research.
* Covers the endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, physiology, behaviour and anatomy of vertebrate reproduction.
* Structured coverage of the major themes for all five vertebrate groups allows a consistent treatment for all.
* Special chapters elaborate on features specific to individual vertebrate groups and to comparative aspects, similarities and differences between them.

Review:

"This book provides an extensive review of our current knowledge of the endocrinology of reproduction in birds...The contributors to this book are all internationally known for their expertise in the field of reproductive endocrinology, and I believe that this book will be a valued reference for avian eco-physiologists in the coming decade."--Marine Ornithology Volume 40, No. 1, 2012 "This is an essential reference giving an overview of recent studies in the field of endocrinology, physiology, behavior reproductive anatomy under the angle of ecology and evolution. Eighteen contributors mainly American, have contributed to this volume which will be very useful to endocrinologists, physiologists, but also to students in these areas."--Alauda, 81 (4), 2013

About the Author:

Dr. Norris has done research in environmental endocrinology and neuroendocrinology for more than 40 years, investigating the role of natural (e.g., photoperiod, temperature) and anthropogenic environmental factors (metals, pesticides, estrogens, industrial pollutants) on thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive endocrinology in regards to development, sexual maturation, seasonal reproduction, and aging. Most of his research has involved fishes and amphibians.
