Clinicians from Australia and New Zealand have chosen to review together classic reproductive physiology and those areas of general physiology that are profoundly modified by pregnancy. They have oriented their writing toward the clinical application of the new and rapidly increasing knowledge of reproduction.
Beginning with a scholarly chapter on human cytogenetics, the book proceeds with comprehensive reviews of the endocrinology of the ovary (R. P. Shearman), testis (B. Hudson and H. G. Burger), fetomaternal unit (G. C. Liggins), adrenal cortex (A. W. Steinbeck), and thyroid (H. K. Ibbertson). Physiological changes caused by pregnancy are discussed: carbohydrate and lipid metabolism
