Volume 5, Mammals, in the five-volume work Hormones and Reproduction of Vertebrates brings together the current knowledge of the reproductive endocrinology of mammals, with emphasis on synthesis rather than summation. Model species have been emphasized in some cases, but this is balanced with discussions of reproductive cycles of wild mammals as well as laboratory rodents and humans. The volume has been organized along traditional lines by first focusing on components of the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonad (HPG) axis and then by discussing specific topics of particular relevance to mammal reproduction (maternal hormones in eggs, stress, courtship, mating, and parental behaviors, and endocrine disruption). Chapter coverage includes hormones and reproductive cycles of monotremes and marsupials, wild rodents, bats, and primates
