Synopsis
This Second Edition of Human Reproductive Biology is as up-to-date as today's headlines. Everyday we read about issues such as female and male reproductive cancers and other disorders, stress and reproduction, the effects of drugs and pollutants on fetal development and adult reproduction, contraceptives and their side effects, infertility and "high-tech" treatments, sex differences in the brain, and causes and patterns of gender identity and sexual behavior. This book, emphasizing the biological and biomedical aspects of human reproduction, elucidates today's advances in reproductive science as well as the choices and concerns that are part of our lives. Generously illustrated, the text provides current information about human reproductive anatomy and physiology and includes discussion of a myriad of topics, including:
* New treatments for PMS
* Anabolic steroids
* High-tech infertility treatments
* Hormones and brain sex
* Sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS
* Evolution of human mating systems
* Hormone replacement therapies

Key Features
* Contains a new chapter on sex differences in the human brain
* Offers an expanded discussion of reproductive diseases such as breast and prostate cancer; effects of drugs and environmental pollutants on reproduction; human sexual behavior; and AIDS
* Includes new "highlight boxes" dealing with hot topics in human reproduction
* Provides references at the end of each chapter that are divided into Further Reading (at the level of this book) and Advanced Reading (for exploration of specific topics in the advanced scientific literature)
* Contains concise chapter summaries and a detailed table of contents and subject index
