Researchers in a wide range of medical and biological disciplines summarize recent research and current understanding of the basic human male germ cell, focusing on factors that might cause or contribute to male infertility. Among their topics are the development and maturation of human germ cells and disorders of those processes in childhood, capacitation and acrosome reaction, the clinical management of men with macrocephalic sperm head syndrome, sperm-induced oocyte activation, concern and possible seminal quality decline in the world's male population, suggestions from the fruit fly on whether the heterochromatic component of the human Y chromosome is a genetic wasteland or something more, heavy metal contamination and male reproductive health, and spermatozoa in zero-gravity.
