Overview

Endocrine and Reproductive Physiology, a volume in the Mosby Physiology Monograph Series, explains the fundamentals of endocrine and reproductive physiology in a clear and concise manner. This medical textbook gives you a basic understanding of how endocrine and metabolic physiology affects other body systems in health and disease, including the clinical dimensions of reproductive endocrinology.

  • Bridge the gap between normal function and disease with pathophysiology content throughout the book.
  • Easily master the material in your systems-based curriculum with learning objectives, Clinical Concept boxes, chapter summaries, and self-study questions.
  • Understand complex concepts by examining almost 200 clear, 2-color diagrams.
  • Apply what you've learned to real-life clinical situations using featured clinical commentaries.
  • Take your learning wherever you go!
  • Stay abreast of recent advances in endocrine physiology with expanded material on reproductive endocrinology and metabolism, and many updates at the molecular and cellular level.

Learn the latest developments in fertilization, pregnancy, and lactation, as well as fetal development, puberty, and the decline of reproductive function with age.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Robert M Stern, MA (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book gives a basic physiological description of the key components of the endocrine and reproductive systems as well as clinically useful descriptions of diseases that affect each system.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a basic background in the physiology of the endocrine and reproductive systems in order to understand diseases that affect these systems. These objectives are excellent for students seeking to gain a basic knowledge of these systems as part of college or medical school training.
Audience: Although the authors do not directly state their intended audience, the book is ideal for first-year medical students learning physiology or college students in a physiology class.
Features: The book focuses on each of the major systems within the endocrine and reproductive systems, providing a comprehensive discussion of the underlying physiology of each component within the system. The discussion is nicely supplemented with pictures and diagrams to aid in comprehension. Particularly innovative and useful are the clinical correlations in each section that tie together basic physiology and pathophysiology.
Assessment: This is the only comprehensive book I have read in this field. In comparison to the broader physiology textbooks that include discussions of these systems, this one is clear and easy to read. It also provides just the right amount of clinical correlation for college students or first-year medical students.
