Ever since Adam and Eve : the evolution of human sexuality by Malcolm Potts( Book )

"Eminent scientists Malcolm Potts and Roger Short view the broad panorama of human sexual and reproductive behaviour to reveal an inextricable mixture of nature and nurture - a combination of innate actions that have evolved over the millennia to adapt us to a nomadic, hunter-gatherer lifestyle, overlain by more recent cultural constraints imposed by civilization. For each of life's milestones - love, marriage, sexual intercourse, pregnancy, birth, puberty, parenting, menopause and death - they describe the biology behind our actions and consider how pressures imposed by various historical and contemporary cultures have further influenced our behaviour. By looking back at the past they attempt to make sense of the present, to see how and why these cultural modifications arose, how they have contributed to the richness of human sexual behaviour, and how our biological and cultural inheritance can help us to develop a more rational approach to the problems that now beset us - declining reproductive health and excessive population growth."--Jacket

Regulation of implantation and establishment of pregnancy in mammals : tribute to 45 year anniversary of Roger V. Short's "Maternal recognition of pregnancy"( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past few decades technological advances in transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and glycomics, along with the ability to selectively knockout genes of interest, have greatly advanced our understanding of the maternal-conceptus interactions that are essential for the establishment and maintenance of a successful pregnancy. This knowledge provides the basis for new research endeavors to address infertility, embryonic loss and recurrent abortion in humans, captive wild animals and important farm species. This book brings together current reviews from leading experts to address the diversity of mechanisms by which species establish and maintain pregnancy. Implantation in rodents, dogs, pigs, cattle, sheep, horses, primates, humans and embryonic diapause in wild species are discussed. The reviews provide readers with the latest knowledge on the role of the endometrial steroid receptors, adhesion factors, cytokines, interferons, steroids, prostaglandins, growth factors and immune cells involved in the regulation of conceptus development
