Stress and Reproduction in Reptiles Richard R. Tokarz and Cliff H. Summers 8. Hormones and Behavior of Reptiles Barry Sinervo and Donald B. Miles 9. Viviparity in Reptiles: Evolution and Reproductive Endocrinology Lori C. Albergotti and Louis J. Guillette Jr. 10. Hormones and Reproductive Cycles in Turtles Ga͡lle Blanvillain, David Wm. Owens, and Gerald Kuchling 11. Hormones and Reproductive Cycles in Crocodilians Matthew R. Milnes 12. Hormones and Reproductive Cycles in Lizards Matthew B. Lovern 13. Hormones and Reproductive Cycles in Snakes Emily N. Taylor and Dale F. DeNardo 14. Actions of Endocrine Disrupting Contaminants in Reptiles Ashley S.P. Boggs, Nicole L. Botteri, Heather J. Hamlin and Louis J. Guillette Jr. 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.
