Research on absence of father or mother in child's life

So I've heard a lot about research that  shows that the absence of the father in the child's life brings about serious consequences. Could somebody direct me to the actual research (names, title of article, etc?). Moreover, is there similar research that shows the same effects if the mother is the one absence from the child's life? Thanks!!

Fathers & Families (Glenn Sacks, et al.) have a LOT of information regarding research...you also might want to check out ACFC (Amercian Coalition for Fathers and Children), they're a good resource, too.
