Key Features

* Addresses all phases of the ovarian life cycle
* New information includes the latest developments
in ovarian surface epithelium
* Contains 38 in-depth chapters


This second edition of The Ovary incorporates the dramatic research developments regarding the ovarian life cycle within the past decade.
It looks at ovarian function from a detailed molecular and cellular level. The updated chapters, along with the new material, represent an unparalleled compilation of chapters relevant to contemporary ovarian physiology. The book is divided into 8 sections: The Ovarian Follicular Apparatus: Operational Characteristics; Oocyte Maturation and Ovulation; The Corpus Luteum; Putative Intraovarian Regulators; Cyclic Ovarian Cell Death; Novel Experimental Models; Human Ovarian Pathophysiology: Select Aspects; and Human Ovarian Surface Epithelium and Neoplasia.


Reproductive endocrinologists, physiologists, cell and molecular biologists, fertility/infertility specialists, as well as obstetriticans and gynocologists.

Quotes and reviews

"The chapters are well written...The Ovary should be of great value to established scholars in the field because it conveniently reviews the developments of the past decade and will quickly bring them up to date. This handsome volume can be highly recommended. Each chapter is amply referenced, making this book a great resource for anyone with a detailed interest in the ovary."

"...a comprehensive reference and value for the money...more for those who are curious to enquire into the scientific basis of clinical medicine."
