Examining mating from the male perspective, this book provides an overview of mammalian reproduction to illustrate the important role that male desire plays in the life of mammals. Written in a conversational style that will appeal to those without specialist knowledge of the field, it begins with a broad overview of sexual reproduction in mammals, explaining the importance of mixing genes, sexual selection and the concept of mating seasons.

In this book Professor Glover draws on his detailed comparative studies of reproduction to provide insight into the evolution of the male reproductive tract as well as male mating behaviour. He uses his quirky sense of humour to challenge our thoughts on various aspects of the subject, and stimulates us to reconsider some well-entrenched 'facts'. Inevitably, some of the questions he raises remain open-ended, providing the challenge for future investigators to examine them further. His easy style makes the book a pleasure to read, it is a 'page-turner' that gathers one up in the excitement of discovery and the development of ideas about an important subject.

Examining mating from the male perspective, this book provides an overview of mammalian reproduction to illustrate . Glover knows the male mammal's reproductive system like the back of his hand, and Mating Males is a useful introduction to the subject for biologists, students, and even curious general readers.

Mating Males: An Evolutionary Perspective on Mammalian Reproduction. The 1970s and 1980s flavour is confirmed by the references. There isn't an "evolutionary perspective" except in such phrases as "it is fashioned to suit the mode of coitus in each species" when talking of penis shape.

Examining mating from the male perspective, this book provides an overview of mammalian reproduction to illustrate the important role that male desire plays in the life of mammals. Written in a conversational style that will appeal to those without specialist knowledge of the field, it begins with a broad overview of sexual reproduction in mammals, explaining the importance of mixing genes, sexual selection and the concept of mating seasons. Subsequent chapters examine some of the most important aspects in detail including mating behaviour, the structure and function of the male organs of reproduction and their physiological control and modes of copulation. A final chapter considers human reproduction, explaining how our physical and social evolution have contributed to the development of sexual behaviour that is markedly different to that of other mammals, due in particular to the absence of oestrus and seasonality in the human female.
