TitleZuckerman, Solly, Baron Zuckerman of Burnham Thorpe: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionCitation typed
CitationDistinguished for important researches on the morphology and relationships of the Primates, and on their reproductive physiology. He has made outstanding contributions to the study of social behaviour in lower Primates, especially important as a basis for the study of primitive human society (see his books 'Social Life of Monkeys and Apes', and 'Functional Affinities of Man, Apes and Monkeys'). Since 1930 he has published many papers dealing with the menstrual cycle and associated phenomena, embodying an experimental demonstration of the probable hormonal factors involved. In a recent extension of this work he has elucidated several aspects of the overlap in function of the hormones produced by the gonads and adrenal cortex, and has revealed a significant influence of the adrenals on the periodicity of oestrus. Of importance, also, is his study of the effects of oestrogens on the prostrate and of their relation to prostatic enlargement in Man.
