Comparison of patterns and physiology of reproduction among mammalian orders and species. Overall emphasis will be on the beneficial strategies and the unique physiological mechanisms for successful reproduction presented by the diversity among mammals. Environmental impacts and constraints on reproductive cycles will be explored. Domestic species will provide background and examples of basic physiology of reproduction for male and female animals: Monotremes to primates, lab animals, wild species, seasonal breeders and hibernators.

When Offered Spring.
