Female Reproductive Toxicology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The mother serves a critical role in reproduction, such that fertility problems in females within a population may have a direct impact on reproductive capabilities in the entire species. Reproductive toxicology involves the study of the effects of xenobiotic agents on the development and reproductive capacity of individuals. This chapter discusses the importance of studying female reproductive toxicology and introduces specific features of female reproductive functions as they are or may be affected by exposure to occupational and environmental toxicants. The chapter also provides an overview of the topics that are covered in depth in the chapters that follow.
