LAB: A LABORATORY MANUAL
FOR ANIMAL REPRODUCTION
by A.M. SORENSEN, JR.
4th, ed., January 1979, 151pgs, $26.95
may be used in cunjunction with audio-tutorial systems supplemented
by slides, tapes and films. Visual aid help is available from
The exercises are presented in a sequence, but may be rearranged
if so desired. No attempt is made to make this manual all inclusive.
It is expected that the student shall be mature, with a scientific
approach to the subject, and an appreciation of the basic areas
of reproduction. An understanding of histology, embryology, endocrinology,
anatomy and physiology are essential to the practical applications
of animal reproduction.
Research data are
being reported in the U.S. system and the metric system. The change
is difficult for most of us, therefore, measurements of dimensions
and capacities are given on page xiii to aid you.
Temperatures are given
in Fahrenheit and centigrade (Celsius) to acquaint you with both
It is hoped that this
manual will serve as a guide to an enjoyable learning experience
for you and perhaps stimulate some to continue for advanced degrees
in the field of physiology of reproduction.
I admire and appreciate
my graduate students very much. They have served as a source of
initiative, inspiration and assistance in developing our course
and this manual. Those who have contributed most are W.F. Davis,
D.C. Kraemer, J.C. Reitmeyer, S.E. Curl, J.L. Ruttle, L.F. Miller,
C.M. Smallwood, J.S. Connor, T.D. Deen, M.E. Lisano, A.L. Hoermann,
Mary Herron, J.P. McCall, T.L. Woodward, E.F. Fugger, Sheri Skinner,
and M.J. Fields.
