For laboratory courses in Comparative Embryology/Developmental Biology.
This stand-alone, fully illustrated atlas of descriptive embryology features over 300 detailed, accurate, and fully labeled illustrations (photomicrographs, line drawings, and orientation drawings). Comprehensive in coverage, it considers many different organisms, and features comparative embryology (i.e., gametogenesis in rat, human, cat, grasshopper, locust; development of Ascaris, C. elegans, sea urchin, starfish, frog, chick, and pig; and the human uterus and placenta).
• Comprehensive coverage of a large variety of developing organisms exposes students to many different developmental strategies, and enables instructors to select specific organisms for study.
• Over 300 high-quality photo-micrographic illustrations enable students to quickly identify similar structures in their own specimens using side-by-side reference to the atlas.
• Over 50 valuable line-drawings from classical textbooks present supplemental, interpretive views of photo-micrographic illustrations to help students understand developmental events in four dimensions – i.e., the three dimensions of space, plus the dimension of time.
• Combined glossary, synopsis of development and index quickly defines for students the important terminology and places this terminology into the context of the overall developmental scheme.
• Orientation figures for transverse sections familiarize students with the level of the body (section) under study and helps them understand the three-dimensional (spatial) context of the section (structure) within the whole embryo.
• A new chapter on regeneration (Chapter 9) has been added, including several new photographs and line drawings.
• The text now contains 10 chapters, with the original Chapter 9 moved to Chapter 10.
• Terminology has been updated as needed throughout the text.
• The Glossary, Synopsis of Development and Index has been expanded to include additional terms.
• Selected labels on drawings throughout the text have been revised as needed for increased accuracy.
