Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: two semesters of college-level biology.

J. Allen.

Comparative anatomy and physiology of mammalian and avian reproduction, with emphasis on domestic and laboratory animals; fertilization through embryonic development, pregnancy, and growth to sexual maturity; emphasis on physiological mechanisms and application to fertility regulation. Separate laboratory is offered to demonstrate fundamental aspects of reproduction and reproductive technology.

Outcome 1: Compare species differences in various aspects of reproductive form and function.

Outcome 2: Recognize and recommend corrective measures for causes of infertility and reproductive dysfunction.

Outcome 3: Propose the physiological basis for existing and emerging reproductive technologies such as estrous cycle regulation, gamete and embryo preservation and transfer, in vitro fertilization and related technologies, and pregnancy diagnosis.
