The Color Atlas of "Xenopus laevis" Histology provides the first central source on the microscopic anatomy of cells, tissues, and major organs of the adult South African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. For many years, X. laevis has been a highly popular experimental animal model in many areas of research. The recent development of transgenic Xenopus technology offers the promise that this animal model will be utilized more than ever before. The purpose of this book is to provide the active researcher with a central source of high quality light microscopic color images of the tissues of X. laevis, to aid in the identification of the cells and tissues of interest.

Major features of this atlas include:

*277 large, colorful, high resolution light microscopic images of cells, structures, tissues and organs;
*Clear, detailed labeling of important structures in all images;
*Concise, easy-to-read descriptions of histological organization and functions;
*Colorful three-dimensional illustrations that simplify complex structure;
*Detailed presentation of cranial structures and organization;
*Easy-to-use cross-referenced index;
*Bundled CD/ROM containing all images for easy downloading.
