Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny


About the Series

The Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny series provides unique coverage of reproductive biology with each volume in the series covering a specific taxonomic group. Phylogeny and classification are covered as a necessary framework for an understanding of reproductive biology, and evidence for relationships from molecular studies is an important aspect of this series.

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Fishes (Agnathans and Bony Fishes): Phylogeny, Reproductive System, Viviparity, Spermatozoa

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Fishes (Agnathans and Bony Fishes): Phylogeny, Reproductive System, Viviparity, Spermatozoa

1st Edition

Barrie G M Jamieson
November 21, 2018

It is perhaps because fishes live in a buoyant medium, whether it be fresh or sea water, that they show a diversity in body shapes that is unparalleled by other vertebrates. There is also a unique diversity in the modes of reproduction, whether by external or internal fertilization, and this, with...

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Snakes

1st Edition

Robert D. Aldridge, David M. Sever

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Fishes (Agnathans and Bony Fishes): Sperm Competition Hormones

1st Edition

Barrie G M Jamieson
January 08, 2009

The animals loosely termed fish constitute more than half of all known vertebrate species. There are approximately 27,000 described living species of bony fishes (Euteleostomi = Osteichthyes), about 70 species of hagfishes and some 34 species of lampreys. Approximately 970 species are...

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Cetacea: Whales, Porpoises and Dolphins

1st Edition

Debra Lee Miller
January 06, 2007

The order Cetacea comprises some amazing species, representing some of the most evolved creatures that inhabit this earth. Yet, they also represent a group of species for which much remains unknown. There are over 80 species of cetaceans composed of porpoises, dolphins and whales. This volume...

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Gymnophiona: Caecilians

1st Edition

Barrie G M Jamieson, Jean-Marie Exbrayat
January 05, 2006

One of the little known species in the danger of extinction, gymophionan amphibians, are also known as caecilians or apoda. Gymnophiona contains 154 species belonging to 34 genera and 6 families. For many years, studies on the Gymnophiona were disparate and still only a few species have been deeply...

1st Edition

Barrie G M Jamieson, Greg Rouse, Fredrik Pleijel
January 03, 2006

Annelida is a diverse group of animals, commonly referred to as segmented worms and currently comprising around 14000 described species.

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Chondrichthyes: Sharks, Batoids, and Chimaeras, Volume 3

1st Edition

William C. Hamlett
March 01, 2005

Internal fertilization is universal in chondrichthyan fishes and, as such, requires a suite of biological activities, including behavioral, morphological and physiological mechanisms, to ensure successful copulation and fertilization. This volume correlates available data and ideas concerning the...
