The report presents an overview of the biology of oogenesis, ovulation and atresia. An effort has been made to emphasize what is known in human females. When information is not available, pertinent laboratory animal data are discussed. The cellular and histological organization of the ovarian follicle is reviewed along with the physiological events in follicular maturation or degeneration. When data are available, various end points of ovarian follicle vulnerability to chemical and physical toxicants are related to known or potential adverse reproductive effects.
