A propos de ce titre
Reproductive Biology of Invertebrates Volume III Accessory Sex Glands Edited by K. G. Adiyodi Accessory Sex Glands is the third volume in the encyclopaedic series and provides very valuable information, some hitherto unpublished, on the distribution, structure, origin physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology and evolution of the accessory sex glands in different groups of invertebrates. Volumes I and II of this series (published by Wiley) have given detailed accounts of the structure, origin, composition and physiology of female and male gametes and also provided some information on the mechanisms controlling their production. The secretions of accessory sex glands are indispensable for several key aspects of gamete physiology and for successful fertilization and development in many internally fertilizing invertebrates. Interestingly enough, accessory sex gland secretions are produced, in some species at least, under the influence of gonadotrophic hormones as are the gametes themselves. The data on invertebrate accessory sex glands are scattered in various journals and have not been so far collected, critically evaluated and published in book form. This volume thus fills a void and serves as an indispensable corollary and companion to the two volumes that have already appeared on gametology in the series.

This multi-volume work encompasses a large body of data on the reproductive biology of invertebrates. Surveys the past 100 years' worth of research on invertebrate sexuality, reproduction and development in one convenient source. Four major areas of coverage include the origin, growth, structure, composition and function of the female gamete; spermatogenesis and sperm function of the male gamete; how accessory sex glands facilitate the gamete's packing, storage, survival and delivery, the modes of insemination and types of care bestowed by parents on the developing young.
