Overview

For the latest information about embryological development, turn to HUMAN EMBRYOLOGY AND DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY. This comprehensive, clearly written textbook emphasizes the molecular basis of human embryological development, explaining the "why" in addition to the "how." Many full-color clinical photographs and illustrations stress the function of embryological structures and the progression of development. All information has been updated to include the most current research findings and contemporary clinical applications. Chapter summaries and review questions aid in students' learning. This edition includes new clinical photographs, Clinical Correlation boxes, and clinical vignettes.

Discusses development in terms of activity at the molecular and cellular level to explain embryological development, instead of just describing structure and function. Includes over 300 color drawings in striking detail, drawn in accordance with the universally-accepted embryological color code for more realistic representation. Contains end-of-chapter questions to provide quick review of the most important concepts for better comprehension. Features chapter summaries of the key concepts to reinforce comprehension and encourage student self-assessment. Uses boldface key terms to emphasize the terms and concepts that students most need to know. Features a clear, concise, understandable narrative that focuses on the progression of development to provide easy comprehension of difficult and complex material. Provides many full color photographs of clinical conditions.

Spanish version also available, ISBN: 84-8174-471-9

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael F. Dauzvardis, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is a second edition work (first edition, 1994) geared toward use in first year medical school curricula.
Purpose: The purpose is to enlighten the student on the complexities of human development by integrating molecular and morphological processes. The author more than meets this objective through the use of simple and concise tables and illustrations, coupled with succint text.
Audience: Though it is primarily targeted at beginning medical students, clinicians, nurses, graduate students, teachers, and others working in heath/biological fields would also benefit from this text. The author has written textbooks for 30 years, and is certainly a credible source.
Features: The focuses is on human development from gametogenesis to birth with special emphasis on genetic and clinically related events. Unique features include a list of developmentally important molecules, clinical vignettes, multiple choice review questions, and over 500 illustrations. Also captivating are several small illustrated asides dealing with such rarely covered topics as the formation of the nipple or osteogenesis of the cervical vertebrae.
Assessment: This truly stands out as a modern embryological teaching tool. All of the old standards, step-by-step embryogenesis, teratology, etc., are covered. Also, for the first time, the influence of genetic and molecular biology is treated simplistically and in a comprehensible fashion. Improvements to this second edition work certainly make it a worthwhile text to add to an educator's embryological armamentarium.
