about

This popular text makes it surprisingly easy to gain an in-depth understanding of human embryology. Engaging and richly illustrated, it examines all aspects of human development, emphasizing both basic concepts and relevant clinical problems. The book presents a week-by-week and stage-by-stage view of how fetal organs and systems develop, why and when birth defects occur, and what roles the placenta and fetal membranes play in development. The comprehensively updated 8th edition comes with access to the complete contents online via Student Consult, plus 18 phenomenal embryology animations, additional review questions and answers, and more.

Editorial Reviews

.,."packed with excellent and colourful pictures of explaining how the various structures develop and change with time...Basically this is a good choice for someone who likes embryology and wants to get a good mark, not just a pass." "Medical Student, University of Nottingham, UK (review of previous edition)" BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended "An up-to-date textbook on embryology for medical students with a relevance far beyond that. There is abundant illustration of the text and extensive clinical correlation. An extremely accessible book that has a lot more clinical correlation than its previous editions. It's a pleasure to use."
