Abstract

To paraphrase the stated purpose of the Workshop: it was to see where we stand today in our understanding of how the activities of the follicle and corpus luteum (CL) are regulated. My assignment, which really amounted to assessing the extent to which the Workshop fulfilled its purpose, was not easy. In fact, it was about the hardest job I’ve ever undertaken, and has made me feel very much like the soldier, who while on kitchen duty, was assigned the job of sorting the good from the bad potatoes, and peeling only the good ones. Several hours later, he was still sitting before the pile of potatoes, not a single one of which had been sorted, and when asked why he hadn’t done his job, he replied: “I don’t mind hard work, it’s making all these decisions that’s too much for me!” To have summarized in a sentence or two the contents of each paper presented at or submitted to the Workshop would have been child’s play. To decide just what the Workshop did accomplish was not. The most important reasons for my difficulty probably arose from the way I look at things, but some also came from some of the current trends in biology and reproductive biology. This may become clearer as we go along.
