The book, the first to describe how the testis is evaluated in research and toxicology testing settings, is a resource for individuals who wish to perform a systematic evaluation of the testis. The book contains 728 illustrations and drawings. The book begins with a description of normal testis structure. It provides staging schemes for the three species (rat, mouse and dog) most commonly used in research and toxicology testing situations. Staging of spermatogenesis is designed to be self-taught. A chapter on tissue preparation is written for the investigator to examine the options of tissue preparation available and to make a selection that suits a particular purpose. Perfusion fixation of the testis is described in detail. Histopathology of the testis is amply illustrated. Both qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the testis are stressed.
