Welcome to Lactation Biology

Welcome to the online modules of Lactation Biology, ANSC 438. These modules will introduce you to mammals and lactation biology, milk composition, and mammary structure.

The Beginning module will introduce you to some concepts that underlie the field of Lactation Biology. Take the journey that starts many millions of years ago with the evolutionary emergence of mammals and continues through to the great diversity of lactation that exists today.
