Description

Product Description

The fourth edition of Human Reproductive Biology―winner of a 2015 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from The Text and Academic Authors Association―emphasizes the biological and biomedical aspects of human reproduction, explains advances in reproductive science and discusses the choices and concerns of today. Generously illustrated in full color, the text provides current information about human reproductive anatomy and physiology. This expansive text covers the full range of topics in human reproduction, from the biology of male and female systems to conception, pregnancy, labor and birth. It goes on to cover issues in fertility and its control, population growth and family planning, induced abortion and sexually transmitted diseases. This is the ideal book for courses on human reproductive biology, with chapter introductions, sidebars on related topics, chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading.

Review

"This is a useful addition to the field of reproductive biology. Since the publication of the previous edition, numerous advances have been made in the study of human reproduction. The authors have updated and revised their book with the goal of providing the latest available findings. They have done a superb job of creating a readable, aesthetically appealing textbook that provides a comprehensive overview of human reproductive biology." --DOODY''S, 5 Stars!

"Elegantly written, profusely illustrated, and comprehensively revised to keep pace with rapidly moving research frontiers, the new edition of Jones and Lopez''s Human Reproductive Biology is the text of choice for any college-level course in human reproduction. New material has been skillfully integrated into what was already a successful book. New illustrations and well-designed boxes and side-panels enliven the text while updated references guide students into the primary literature. This new edition easily laps the competition."--Peter T. Ellison, Harvard University "This text is a comprehensive treatment of a highly significant area of science that will be greatly appreciated by reproductive biologists and anyone else with an interest in human reproductive biology. The text provides an entree into virtually every aspect of human reproductive biology, from classical paradigms to contemporary ideas and approaches. The presentation is clear and the illustrations useful. This is an excellent effort by only two authors." --Paul M. Wassarman, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York

"This is clearly the best text on Reproduction available. Jones and Lopez have carefully analyzed and integrated and years of classical work on reproductive biology and transformed it into a very readable book on human reproduction. Although I have been teaching a course on human reproduction for the last sixteen years, and I have reviewed 3 different texts on this subject, I learned something new the first time I perused the new edition of Jones and Lopez." --Cliff Jones, School of Medicine, University of South Dakota

"This is the most comprehensive text on human reproduction I’ve read. It covers not only the basic biology of reproduction but also perspectives from evolution and across cultures, as well as practical information that will be useful to all readers, whether students, teachers, or researchers. It’s certainly the best textbook for anthropology and evolution courses dealing with reproduction." --Wendy Trevathan, New Mexico State University

I rented this book to provide my daughter with reproductive education since her Christian school requires this of parents. The pictures are pretty good and they cover all topics from baby formation to STD''s and the reproductive organs and processes. The illustrations are fairly well documented and presented. This book allowed us to review the facts of reproduction in one or two evenings mainly using the illustrated pictures.

The book is written in a way that is understandable and interesting, and I love the clinical abnormalities that they include which I am most interested in. Good diagrams and layout too.

Worth the money
Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2017
I had to purchase this book since the publisher would not provide me with a desk copy. Worth the value. Very detailed. Appropriate for second or third year undergraduates in biology.

Good Book
Reviewed in the United States on May 12, 2017
Good book, informative, easy to comprehend, renting the book is a good option, not too technical but a little material sometimes feels out of place, repetative, or scarce. Overall a good sense of the reproductive system for anyone to read.

Gut für Einsteiger
Reviewed in Germany on April 30, 2017
Sehr übersichtliches Lehrbuch. Bietet einen guten Überblick, geht jedoch nicht sehr ins Detail. Das Buch ist somit eher für Einsteiger geeignet.
