Reproductive Biology of the Mare: Basic and Applied Aspects, 2nd Edition
by O. J. Ginther
An extensively revised and expanded text and reference book for research scientists, veterinarians, teachers, students and others needing in-depth information on the biologic & applied aspects of mare reproduction.
Biologic mechanisms are treated in detail, but sections or chapters usually culminate in a summary or diagrammed conceptual overview that seems most consistent with current knowledge.
Comprehension is aided by illustrative material including photographs, photomicrographs, drawings and original conceptual diagrams. All chapters include a listing of highlights & in most instances, a chronological list of milestones.
The applied ramifications of the biology covered in each chapter or section are discussed. In addition, the book includes a 64-page chapter on reproductive efficiency (e.g. pregnancy loss, twinning).
Considerable effort has been devoted to developing a realistic perspective of mare reproductive biology. Little is taken for granted; the appropriate experimental work is discussed in the development of conclusions and in the consideration of currently controversial matters.
Research needs and project suggestions are noted throughout, as well as the potential for utilization of the mare as a research model. 107 colored photographs in 20 plates, 103 black and white photographs or plates, 207 graphs and tables, 55 drawings and conceptual diagrams, 1,875 references in a single bibliography.PDF 592 MB Password: vetbooks.ir Help
