This fifth edition of Equine Reproductive Physiology Breeding and Stud Management provides a thorough grounding in equine reproductive anatomy and physiology for equine, animal and veterinary science students. Including all aspects of breeding and stud management, it contains detailed coverage on the management of mares, stallions and foals, as well as stud management practicalities such as infertility, artificial insemination and advanced reproductive techniques. This new edition provides:

- Practical, stud management applications underpinned by scientific research;
- New material on techniques and advances such as in vitro embryo production, cloning, transgenics and DNA technology;
- Increased pedagogic features such as video links, glossary, review questions, and a new internal design.

Updated throughout with new references, this textbook continues to provide an authoritative treatise of equine reproduction for students, practicing veterinary surgeons and stud managers.

"This is a well-organized and informative textbook that will provide readers with foundational-level knowledge of equine reproduction at an excellent price."
