Chapters in the first section discuss the coevolution of mammalian gametes, comparative morphology, mammalian sperm membranes, sperm acrosomal enzymes and the acrosome reaction, morphogenesis of the mammalian egg cortex, and mammalian zonae pelucidae. Subsequent chapters focus on selected species--marsupials; bats; the mouse, golden hamster, rat, guinea pig, and rabbit; dogs and cats; the pig, horse, cow, and rhesus monkey; and man. Finally, new approaches for studying mammalian gametes are presented--micromanipulation, molecular biology to study sperm function, and to study development and function of oocytes.
