Fully geared towards the medical school curriculum, the coverage of major steps in human development allows a better understanding of adult anatomy, development-associated conditions, congenital abnormalities and their treatments. Embryology at a Glance:
• Features full colour photographs and illustrations, including 3- dimensional illustrations where appropriate, and full labels
• Offers 'one-stop' coverage of the skeletal, muscular, circulatory, respiratory, nervous, reproductive, urinary, endocrine and digestive systems
