about

In the era of molecular biology, an atlas that allows a rapid understanding of the complexity of ovarian processes is urgently needed. In this book, the author draws upon her own research, conducted over the past three decades, to provide a unique compilation of high-quality illustrations that offer illuminating insights in a readily accessible form. The ovarian follicles, the corpus luteum, and the interstitial cortex are presented as precisely controlled homeostatic compartments. Physiologic cell death forms and leukocyte subtypes are clearly depicted, and the various steps in the ovulatory process are demonstrated in detail. Further topics addressed include the microvascular bed, the plasticity of intraovarian nerves as part of the remodelling processes in the polycystic and the menopausal ovary, and the role of cytokeratin-positive cells as messengers of innate immunity. This atlas will be a fascinating and informative resource for both trainees and more experienced professionals.
Katharina Spanel-Borowski studied human medicine at Bonn from 1963 to 1969. She subsequently specialized in Pathology and Anatomy at Ulm, Lübeck, and Basel, in Germany and Switzerland, before serving as head of the Institute of Anatomy at the University of Leipzig from 1997 to 2009. She has published on the functional morphology of the...
