Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology
This timely resource offers extensive discussions on the pharmacological, environmental,endocrinological, and natural factors that alter reproductive or developmental processes-elucidating the effects of toxicants on mechanisms of reproduction.
Describing biological actions common to both genders as well as gender-specific processes, Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology
- provides an overview of the basic biology and physiology of organ systems affected by toxicants
- furnishes detailed examples of developmental toxicology
- analyzes germ cell toxicity and infertility
- covers the developmental effects of neurotoxicity
- considers periods of exposure and long-term toxicological consequences
- explains how gonadal processes may be susceptible to toxicants in other reproductive organ systems
- and more!
With over 3700 bibliographic citations and more than 100 photographs, drawings, and tables, Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology is a useful reference for toxicologists; reproductive, developmental, cell, and molecular biologists; endocrinologists; biochemists; obstetricians/gynecologists; pediatricians; pharmacists and pharmacologists; physiologists; geneticists; poison control specialists; and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and medical school students in these disciplines.
