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. All of the important features of female reproductive functions as they are or may be affected by exposure to occupational and environmental toxicants will be addressed in later chapters. The article also provides an overview of the topics that are covered in depth in the articles that follow.
