Historically, reproductive technological know-how has considering reproductive behaviors divorced from the contexts within which they ensue. Taking a extra built-in view, this e-book explores the neuroendocrine bases of copy with regards to their environmental and social contexts. The participants supply compelling debts of reproductive behaviors in animals starting from turtles and lizards to people and nonhuman primates. They study those behaviors from the views of ethology, endocrinology, behavioral genetics, and evolutionary ecology. jointly, they light up the dynamic interaction among the ecological and social contexts of a species and the organic mechanisms regulating reproductive habit. The ebook exhibits how an appreciation of the total complexity of the context of copy really simplifies and clarifies our realizing of reproductive behavior.
