About the book
The male reproductive tract is made up of a series of organs including testes, epididymides, vas deferens, accessory sex glands, seminal vesicles, prostate, and the penis. The reproductive system is made up of specialized cells, tissues, and structures that begin to develop in the uterus, but the only function at puberty. These tissues are well vascularized and innervated and are controlled by an intricate interplay with the endocrine system. Structures of the male reproductive system interact with their endocrine controllers and each other to ensure proper initiation and maintenance of androgen production and spermatogenesis. The normal development of the male reproductive system can be divided into five phases: fetal, neonatal, childhood, puberty, and adulthood. Exposures to potential toxicants may have different reproductive outcomes depending on the dosage and duration of the toxicant exposure, as well as the developmental stage and timing when an organism is exposed. Male reproductive anatomy depicts the basic anatomy and physiological functions of the reproductive system, the embryonic development, functional anatomy, histology, and physiology were systematically described.
This book will intend to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the male reproductive anatomy and the impact of reproductive toxicants on the anatomical level of the reproductive system.
