Mammary Gland Differentiation and Hormonal Influences

  • K. H. Hollmann

Abstract

Phylogenetically, mammary glands appeared in the animal kingdom about 100 million years ago, when the era of the egg-laying dinosaurs declined. At this time milk secretion became vital for the nourishment of an immature offspring and has remained so until our times. For only a few decades has the modern technical world increasingly replaced suckling by artificial nutrition.
