Media reviews
'... the chapters are generally authoritative, providing useful overviews of a variety of research topics in vertebrate reproduction. The book is first rate: very broad, readable (including extra explanations provided in many useful footnotes), well illustrated with many useful figures and tables, organized, thorough, clearly written and truly integrative in its coverage of the biology of comparative reproduction. It will work well as a text and as a valuable reference for professionals from a multitude of disciplines.' American Scientist, September/October 1999
