Veterinary Reproductive Biology of Domestic and Laboratory Animals includes all biological aspects of the reproduction of domestic and laboratory animals, including the dog, cat, pig, large and small ruminants, horse, mouse, rat and rabbit. Organized in two sections, section one covers the domestic animals and section two covers laboratory animals. Written by a team of international experts, each species is discussed in turn and specific information is provided on developmental anatomy, anatomy, histology, histochemistry, histoenzymology, physiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, electron microscopy, endoscopy, embryo transfer, artificial insemination, radiology, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasonography, and nuclear cloning. This unique reference book addresses in detail the most common areas of animal reproduction and will cover classic as well as modern aspects, including artificial insemination, embryo transfer, biotechnology, animal cloning, and other relevant modern topics in animal reproduction. Illustrated copiously with hundreds of original drawings, radiographs, electron microscope images, histologic images, MRI and CT-scan images, and endoscopic images illustrate the book, Veterinary Reproductive Biology of Domestic and Laboratory Animals is the premier reference on the subject of reproduction of animal species.
