In 1964, the Fertilization and Gamete body structure study education software (FERGAP) was once proven on the Marine organic Laboratories, Woods gap, Massachusetts. Over the process the following 12 years, less than the directorship of Dr. Charles B. Metz, FERGAP introduced jointly, knowledgeable, and encouraged a new release of scholars in reproductive biology from worldwide. As scholars of C. B. Metz and as FERGAP trainees, we wish to devote this gathered paintings on comparative mammalian fertilization to our instructor and mentor, Dr. Charles B. Metz. Like a couple of authors contributing to this quantity, we've been struck by way of the numerous influence that C. B. Metz and FERGAP had at the improvement of scholars of reproductive biology. employing either the classical and molecular options of mobile biology and immunology to difficulties of gamete biology, Dr. Metz emphasised a comparative and analytical process that used to be mirrored in his personal study on fertilization in Paramecia, sea urchins, frogs, and mammals. it really is was hoping that this quantity will serve to stimulate scholars to find the myriad of attention-grabbing examine difficulties in gamete and reproductive biology.

The oocyte maturation discussed here refers to events associated with the resumption of meiosis that parallel the acquisition of fertilizability. Sperm maturation refers to the events that take place in spermatozoa after their release from the gonad--events undergone in the epididymis and in the female tract. 1. Oocyte Maturation In considering the maturation of mammalian oocytes, it is unfortunate to find that most functional observations still relate to the Eutheria alone (Masui and Clarke, 1979).
