Maternal transmission as a microbial symbiont sieve, and the absence of lactation in male mammals
The hypothesis that the asymmetry between females and males, together with the hazards that come with biparental transmission of the milk microbiome, generate selection against male lactation in humans, and in mammals in general is put forward.

Mammalian embryology and organogenesis 4 . 1 Historical introduction
The present chapter is to provide a general overview of the main developmental differences among the three major mammalian groups, including man, to prevent diseases and to select for particular forms through domestication.
Prenatal Mammary Gland Development in the Mouse: Research Models and Techniques for Its Study from Past to Present.
- BiologyMethods in molecular biology
This review describes embryonic Mammary gland development in mouse only, and lists mouse models that have been examined for defects in embryonic mammary development, and illustrated how generic molecular biology and biochemistry techniques can be combined with older, developmental biology techniques, to address relevant research questions.
A 100-Year Review: Mammary development and lactation.
- Biology, MedicineJournal of dairy science
The explosion of tools and techniques has driven an almost overwhelming evaluation of cellular and molecular functions in the mammary gland and other tissues, and scientists can now better appreciate the difficulty of the dairy farmer seeking to process DHIA or Dairy Comp 305 data, milking data, weights, feeding reports, pedometer readings, or genomic evaluations.
The neurobiology of parenting: A neural circuit perspective
- Biology, PsychologyBioEssays : news and reviews in molecular, cellular and developmental biology
Recent insights into the neural circuits underlying a particularly fascinating and important form of social interaction, that of parental care, are reviewed to help understand the neural basis of parenting in a variety of animal species, including humans.
Sexual Dimorphism of Parental Care: From Genes to Behavior.
- Biology, PsychologyAnnual review of neuroscience
It is suggested that a more comprehensive understanding of the underlying mechanisms can be achieved by expanding the methodological toolbox, applying ethologically relevant approaches such as nontraditional wild-derived animal models and complex seminatural experimental set-ups.

The perception of Palawan Island (and associated smaller islands) as a biogeographic unit of the Sunda Shelf of Southeast Asia, with only limited similarity to other portions of the Philippine Islands is strongly reinforced.

Lactation induced by luteotrophin in women with mammary cancer; growth of the breast of the human male following estrogenic treatment.
- MedicineCancer research
Luteotrophin induced the secretion of small amounts of milk in a group of women with mammary cancer and in a number of healthy women as well, and, in addition, in two human males to whom estrogenic substances had been administered for therapeutic purposes.
