This is a comprehensive and definitive account of the human male gamete. The volume summarizes many unique and revealing characteristics of the sperm cell that have only recently been identified. It provides a detailed overview of human sperm production, maturation and function, and looks at how these processes affect and influence fertility, infertility and ART. This book will appeal to all practitioners and scientists in reproductive medicine and in particular to clinical scientists, graduate and post-graduate scientists, and laboratory personnel.

"The editors are to be congratulated on recruiting an outstanding list of contributors, many of whom are today's most active and productive investigators in their assigned topics... I wish a book like this had been available to me when I was in graduate school." Amy E.T. Sparks, Ph.D., New England Journal of Medicine "Overall, this book is an excellent overview of many aspects of sperm production and function. It will be very useful to researchers, andrologists and graduate students as well as those interested in gaining knowledge of what is known about spermatozoa." Mark Sigman, American Journal of Human Biology
