Dr. Stanley goes on to conclude that progress was faster in mammals because of interest in human biology and medicine! This work should never have been published without serious editorial scrutiny. In that event, it would have been reduced to at least half its volume and would more suitably have been published as a journal : Spaziani, Eugene. With this new tool of the theory of evolution, and in part to help promote the theory of evolution, Huxley connected paleontology and biology together by looking for similarities in anatomy in the fossil record, where he found all kinds of interesting stuff, like some really obvious similarities between prehistoric horse fossils and modern day.

Hormones play an important role in reproduction. A delicate balance exists among the various hormones. Figure shows the connections between the different reproductive hormones and parts in mammals. In mammals, GnRH stimulates the anterior pituitary gland in the brain to release both FSH and LH, which are essential to reproduction. Tree shrews are small-bodied, scansorial, squirrel-like mammals that occupy a wide range of arboreal, semi-arboreal, and forest floor niches in Southeast Asia and adjacent islands. Comparative aspects of tree shrew biology have been the subject of extensive investigations during the past two decades.

The phylogenetic comparative approach is a statistical method for analyzing correlations between traits across species. Whilst it has revolutionized evolutionary biology, can it work for conservation biology? Although it is correlative, advocates of the comparative method hope that it will reveal general mechanisms in conservation, provide shortcuts for prioritizing conservation research, and Cited by: Pages where the terms "Historic" (textbooks, papers, people, recommendations) appear on this site, and sections within pages where this disclaimer appears, indicate that the content and scientific understanding are specific to the time of means that while some scientific descriptions are still accurate, the terminology and interpretation of the developmental mechanisms reflect.

'Fusco’s and Minelli’s The Biology of Reproduction is impressive in scope. Rather than adopting a more restricted perspective on reproduction - be it on reproduction in mammals, animals, or plants - this book provides a comprehensive overview of the various similarities and variations of this central biological phenomenon across the whole tree of life.

Genre/Form: Congress Conference proceedings: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Comparative biology of reproduction in mammals. [London] Published for the Zoological Society of London by Academic Press, In this chapter, some of the basic principles of reproduction are discussed without trying to give a complete overview.

Instead, some examples are presented which represent common principles of reproduction. In addition, some aspects of human reproduction are described in order to highlight interesting species by: 5.

Janis and Carrano () suggested that large dinosaurs might have faced a lower risk of extinction under ecological changes than similar-sized mammals because large dinosaurs had a higher potential reproductive output than similar-sized mammals (JC hypothesis).

First, we tested the assumption underlying the JC hypothesis. We therefore analysed the potential reproductive output (reflected in Cited by: Most of the book covers a very detailed, well done, discussions of extinct mammals.

He ignores the whole problem of the origin of genetic information, which today it is largely agreed by orthodox evolutionists that the answer is mutations, mistakes in the reproduction of genes and damage to genes from ionizing radiation and other by: Comparative Vertebrate Reproduction is the only comprehensive textbook covering major topics in the reproductive biology of vertebrates, from sexuality and gametogenesis to reproductive ecology and life history tactics.

The work draws heavily on recent reviews and papers while placing topics in a historical context and conceptual : $ Written by renowned scientists in their respective fields, Comparative Reproductive Biology is a comprehensive reference on the reproductive systems of domestic species.

The book offers both broad and specific knowledge in areas that have advanced the field in recent years, including advances in cell and molecular biology applied to. This book is a valuable resource for biological and biomedical researchers concerned with the anatomy and physiology of the heart.

Reproductive Biology of the Great Apes: Comparative and Biomedical Perspectives discusses the great ape reproduction. The book opens with the menstrual cycle of apes as a good foundation for the subject areas that follow.

Accordingly, Chapter 2 focuses on the endocrine changes during the stage of pregnancy among apes, specifically the hormonal changes in chimpanzee.

Knobil and Neill's Physiology of Reproduction. Book • 4th Edition • Authors: Fertilization is a key step in the process of reproduction. In mammals, this begins with the entry of sperm into the fertile state by the process of capacitation, which occurs under instruction from the female reproductive tract, and is required for sperm.
