About this book


Ovulation: Evolving Scientific and Clinical Concepts presents the proceedings of the International Symposium on Ovulation: Evolving Scientic and Clinical Concepts held in Salt Lake City, Utah. Internationally recognized experts provide new insights in the most recent developments in the area of mammalian ovulation, incorporating basic scientific and clinical concepts in the process. Topics include an overview of 37 years of research on ovulation, the follicle, the gonadotropin surge, the intraovarian steroid microenvironment, putative periovulatory intraovarian regulators and messengers, and clinical frontiers. More than 80 illustrations round out the text. The book is essential for all reproductive endocrinologists and Ob-Gyns.
