The insect fat body is analogous to vertebrate adipose tissue and liver. In this review, the new and exciting advancements made in fat body biology in the last decade are summarized. Controlled by hormonal and nutritional signals, insect fat body cells undergo mitosis during embryogenesis, endoreplication during the larval stages, and remodeling during metamorphosis and regulate Cited by:   Thus, for example, menstrual cycles return in some female athletes when energy expenditure is reduced such as after an injury long before there is any change in body weight or an increase in body fat (Loucks, ). Reproductive function, like appetite, is responsive to short-term changes in metabolic food oxidation. Abstract. Changes in the amount as well as in the distribution of fat in the female body are known to occur during human reproduction. Knowledge about the magnitude of these changes as well as their biological basis is a prerequisite for adequate recommendations of Cited by: Reproduction - Reproduction - Life cycles of animals: Invertebrate animals have a rich variety of life cycles, especially among those forms that undergo metamorphosis, a radical physical change. Butterflies, for instance, have a caterpillar stage (larva), a dormant chrysalis stage (pupa), and an adult stage (imago). One remarkable aspect of this development is that, during the transition from.

Action of testosterone: stimulates the development of the male reproductive organs and causes the testes to descend. it is responsible for the development and maintenance of male secondary sex characteristics (facial hair, deeper voice, muscular development). reproductive system is essential to keeping a species alive, it is not essential to keeping an individual alive. This chapter describes the different parts of the female reproductive system: the organs involved in the process of reproduction, hormones that regulate a woman's body, the menstrual cycle, ovulation and pregnancy, the female's.

Understanding female reproductive anatomy includes the study of the external and internal structures; and the hormonal cycle.

  EVIDENCE THAT BODY FAT HAS DIRECT EFFECTS ON REPRODUCTION IN WOMEN In a variety of mammal species where the effect has been studied, the mother's body weight is correlated with offspring survival and age at onset of Fat in Women 61 reproduction, probably because heavier mothers give birth to heavier offspring (e.g., Saether ). The reproductive cycle relates to various phenomena: puberty and sexual maturity, the breeding season, the estrous cycle, postpartum sexual activity, and aging. These components are regulated by environmental, genetic, physiologic, hormonal, behavioral, and psychosocial factors. In the male reproductive system, the scrotum houses the testicles or testes (singular: testis), including providing passage for blood vessels, nerves, and muscles related to testicular function. The testes are a pair of male reproductive organs that produce sperm and some reproductive hormones. Each testis is approximately by cm ( by 1 in) in size and divided into wedge-shaped.
