About this book

The Ninth International Ruminant Reproduction Symposium (9th IRRS) was held in Obihiro City, Hokkaido, Japan in August 2014. The symposium emphasized the most current knowledge and state-of-the-art information on topics relevant mainly to domestic ruminants. Also, it was recognised that ruminant reproduction directly connects to livestock production worldwide; therefore, sessions were included such as “Pathophysiology and Health in Reproduction,” and “Challenges in Optimization of Reproductive Performance”. 

This volume contains the proceedings of 35 scientific presentations that were made over 14 conference sessions. The 35 invited speakers were selected by the Program Committee that consisted of world-leading experts of each scientific area. The final program included sessions on: Phylogenetics; Genome, Proteomics, Metabolomics; Preimplantation; Neuroendocrinology; Peri-implantation; Challenges in Optimization of Reproductive Performance; Male Function and Spermatogenesis; Oocyte and Follicle; Corpus Luteum; Placentation and Parturition; Pathophysiology and Health; Emerging Reproductive Technology; and Applied Reproductive Technology: Up-date.
