This volume, and its companion volume on the oocyte, provide an authoritative and wide-ranging account of the gametes, and their reproductive role and function in humans. Acknowledged authorities from around the world provide a detailed and timely account of the spermatozoon. The volume starts with an evolutionary perspective before focusing on the molecular and cellular biology of the sperm cell, and its structure and function. The development and maturation of sperm are described, as is their movement and transport in the male and female genital tract. Practical issues such as sperm storage and assisted contraception are fully covered. The causes of male infertility are also an important theme. The volume concludes with a thought-provoking chapter on ethical considerations. The volume will be an essential source of information for all clinicians and scientists with an interest in human reproduction.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... well written ... well illustrated ... will provide a useful source of information, particularly for trainees in obstetrics, gynaecology and androcology, and especially for those intending to subspecialise in reproductive medicine, for whom it should be essential reading'. Stewart Irvine, British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
'... provides an integrated and multidisciplinary view of the spermatozoon ... a valuable asset to the field of reproductive biology, andrology and reproductive medicine'. Helen D. Nicholson, Experimental Physiology
'A mine of information about spermatozoa ... a single source of detailed review written by scientists who have all made distinguished contributions in their respective specialisms. Few volumes achieve this quality, whilst at the same time remaining portable enough to be carried around easily and read on the train.' W. V. Holt, Journal of Anatomy
"This book is a mine of information about spermatozoa which will appeal to students who want to know the basic facts about sperm biology. It will also appeal to their lecturers who will want to use the excellent diagrams for teaching. However, the book will also successfully appeal to those directly involved in gamete research; it represents a single source of detailed review written by scientists who have all made distinguished contributions in their respective specialisms. Few volumes achieve this quality, whilst at the same time remaining portable enough to be carried around easily and read on the train." W.V. Holt, Journal of Anatomy
