Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates, Volume Two: Amphibians is the second of five second-edition volumes representing a comprehensive and integrated overview of hormones and reproduction in fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The book includes coverage of endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, physiology, behavior, and anatomy of amphibian reproduction. It provides a broad treatment of the roles of pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, and gonadal hormones in all aspects of reproduction, as well as descriptions of major life history events. New to this edition is a concluding assessment of the effect of environmental influences on amphibians. Initial chapters in this book broadly examine sex determination, reproductive neuroendocrinology, stress, and hormonal regulation as it relates to male and female reproductive structure and function. Subsequent chapters examine hormones and reproduction of specific taxa, including anuran amphibians, urodeles, and gymnophionids. The book concludes with an examination of endocrine disruption of reproduction in amphibians.
