First Prize in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology category at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2008

Essential Reproduction provides an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to the study of reproduction for students taking courses in reproductive physiology in a wide range of subjects, from medicine and midwifery to veterinary medicine and bioscience.

The book spans the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, behavioural science, endocrinology, immunology, genetics and clinical science. It draws out the general, fundamental principles of reproduction, and makes clear the differences between species in relevant areas – often in tabular form or as illustrations for clarity of presentation.

There is a strong emphasis on clear structure and layout, and a good use of pedagogical features such as Key Points, Learning Points, and Further Reading.
