The Ovary, Third Edition includes over 60% new material and expands the sections dealing with clinical aspects of human ovarian functions and highlights advances in the areas of genomics, assisted reproductive technology, and cancer diagnosis and treatment. This new edition synthesizes all of this new information at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels and presents modern ovarian physiology in a more understandable and comparative context.

The Ovary, Third Edition looks at ovarian function from a detailed molecular and cellular level. This work examines in detail all phases of the ovarian life cycle, placing special emphasis on the pathophysiology of the human ovary, including ovarian carcinogenesis.
