Reproduction in Mammals A. Introduction 1. The organs of the male and female reproductive systems ensure the continuation of the species. They do this by producing gametes and by providing a method by which the gametes of the male (i.e., spermatozoa) can be united with a gamete (i.e., ovum) of the female.

Most mammals are viviparous, giving birth to live r, the five species of monotreme, the platypuses and the echidnas, lay monotremes have a sex determination system different from that of most other mammals.

In particular, the sex chromosomes of a platypus are more like those of a chicken than those of a therian mammal. The mammary glands of mammals.

Environmental factors, as well as physiological and historical constraints all contribute to the pattern of reproduction found in any population or species.

Many mammalian genes show evidence of positive selection, but open questions remain about the overall impact of positive selection in mammals. For example, which key differences between species can be attributed to positive selection. How have patterns of selection changed across the mammalian phylogeny?Cited by:   Mammalian reproduction has fascinated scientists and nonscientists for decades.

For this reason, a number of books on mammalian reproduction have been published over the years including the encyclopedic Asdell’s Patterns of Mammalian Reproduction (original as well as the revised version by Hayssen et al.

) and the 8-volume series Reproduction in Mammals Author: Nancy G Solomon. A unique interdisciplinary overview of the way mammals reproduce, this volume synthesizes research done by laboratory physiologists, behaviorists, population ecologists, and animal breeders.

Bronson has drawn together the disparate literature in these areas to provide students and researchers with a comprehensive and biologically integrated approach to the study of mammalian reproduction.4/5(1).

The cyclic reproductive events of female mammals are referred to as the estrous cycle and include a short period of heightened receptivity of the female for mating.

Orr is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Utah. This chapter considers the evolutionary biology of human fertility, parental investment, and mating and is designed to provide a broad overview of the topic. It focuses on three themes.

The first is the timing of life events, including development, reproduction, and aging. Second is the regulation of reproductive rates and its relationship to parental by: Reproductive Patterns The usual reproductive pattern among eutherian mammals is fertilization within the oviduct with early cleavages occurring while traversing the oviduct.

The blastocyst stage is reached at about the time the embryo reaches the uterus and, perhaps after some delay, implantation occurs. The Paperback of the Mammalian Reproduction by Heinz Gibian at Barnes & Noble. FREE Shipping on $35 or more. Due to COVID, orders may be delayed.

This will be the first book to explore, in depth and breadth, the complex interrelationships between patterns of mating behaviour and the evolution of reproductive anatomy and physiology in mammals.Background.

Testes size is used as a proxy of male intrasexual competition, with larger testes indicative of greater competition.

It has been shown that in some taxa, social mating systems reflect variance in testes size, but results are not consistent, and instead it has been suggested that genetic patterns of mating may reflect testes by:   Purchase Methods in Mammalian Reproduction - 1st Edition.
