This is the condensed version of Human Embryology 2nd Edition by William J. Larsen. This consice textbook provides detailed coverage of the concepts and principles that underlie human development. The book provides a view of exciting applications that are currently in use or are on the horizon. Coverage reflects the latest information on human genetics and molecular biology, including the impact of regulatory genes on embryologic development. Summaries at the beginning of each chapter facilitate review. Applications to Clinical Practice sections at the end of most chapters explain the practical relevance of the information. Full-page timelines illustrate embryonic development over days, weeks, and months. A wealth of extraordinary illustrations--including colourful three-dimensional drawings, colour photographs, and crisp, black-and-white electron micrographs--vividly demonstrate the full range of embryologic developmental features. The book's author maintains a worldwide web site that complements the coverage found in Essentials of Human Embryology (http: //www.med.uc.edu/embryology). This web site features animated sequences, based on the book's 3-D drawings, that demonstrate developmental mechanics.The web site also includes a self-testing program, as well as updates that present new regular advances in human developmental biology and clinical practice
Delivers comprehensive, clearly written coverage of the development of the human embryo from conception to birth. Using a classical morphological approach to embryology, it offers mechanistic explanations for both normal and abnormal human development, enabling readers to understand development in terms of cellular and molecular controls.
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.

A newly revised edition of the standard reference for the field today—updated with new terms, major discoveries, significant scientists, and illustrations Developmental biology is the study of the mechanisms of development, differentiation, and growth in animals and plants at the molecular, cellular, and genetic levels. The discipline has gained prominence in part due to new interdisciplinary approaches and advances in technology, which have led to the rapid emergence of new concepts and words. The Dictionary of Developmental Biology and Embryology, Second Edition is the first comprehensive reference focused on the field's terms, research, history, and people. This authoritative A-to-Z resource covers classical morphological and cytological terms along with those from modern genetics and molecular biology. Extensively cross-referenced, the Dictionary includes definitions of terms, explanations of concepts, and biographies of historical figures. Comparative aspects are described in order to provide a sense of the evolution of structures, and topics range from fundamental terminology, germ layers, and induction to RNAi, evo-devo, stem cell differentiation, and more. Readers will find such features of embryology and developmental biology as: Vertebrates Invertebrates Plants Developmental genetics Evolutionary developmental biology Molecular developmental biology Medical embryology The author's premium on accessibility allows readers at all levels to enhance their vocabulary in their field and understand terminology beyond their specific focus. Researchers and students in developmental biology, cell biology, developmental genetics, and embryology will find the dictionary to be a vital resource.
A Biodynamic Approach to Development from Conception to Birth
Author: Erich Blechschmidt
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
This book presents an anatomical overview of the changing form and structure of the human body. Although biomechanical embryology can be traced back to the 19th century, up until recently the most commonly accepted framework for the study of human ontogeny (development of the individual) was molecular biology, which all too frequently relied on findings from animal experiments that remained untested for humans. German embryologist and anatomist Erich Blechschmidt's research concentrates on the evidence presented by the human embryo itself. He offers a new approach to the study of early human growth as a way to shed light on the development of body build, instincts, gestures, language, mathematics, tools, and dress.
The Human Body: Linking Structure and Function provides knowledge on the human body's unique structure and how it works. Each chapter is designed to be easily understood, making the reading interesting and approachable. Organized by organ system, this succinct publication presents the functional relevance of developmental studies and integrates anatomical function with structure. Focuses on bodily functions and the human body's unique structure Offers insight into disease and disorders and their likely anatomical origin Explains how developmental lineage influences the integration of organ systems
The undisputed authority on human embryology and embryonic abnormalities, Human Embryology and Teratology, Third Edition belongs in the library of every physician, biologist, student, and research scientist whose research is concerned with human anatomical development. Its authoritative, concise, and thoroughly illustrated presentation also makes it an ideal reference for practitioners in all medical and surgical subspecialties.
This textbook presents essential and accessible information about human embryology including practical information on human health issues and recent advances in human reproductive technology. Starting with biological basics of cell anatomy and fertilization, the author moves through the development of specific organs and systems, before addressing social issues associated with embryology. Each chapter includes specific objectives, general background, study questions, and questions to inspire critical thinking. Human Life Before Birth also contains two appendices and a full glossary of terms covered in the text. Clinicians and researchers in this field will find this volume indispensable. Key selling features: Explores all the developmental and embryological events that occur in human emryonic and fetal life Reviews basic cell biology, genetics, and reproduction focusing entirely on humans Summarizes the development of various anatomical systems Examines common birth defects and sexually transmitted diseases including emerging concerns such as Zika Documents assisted fertilization technologies and various cultural aspects of reproduction
Despite its inherent controversy, the exploration of the human embryo can unlock many of the answers to our deepest biological questions. In Human Embryogenesis: Methods and Protocols, internationally recognized researchers contribute detailed methods to analyze various aspects of the embryogenesis process. While comprehensively covering subjects such as the molecular mechanisms of embryonic development, in vitro fertilization, cloning, and the laws and ethical considerations of working with embryos, the volume also addresses critical features of fetal and placental development as well as of uterine biology. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and state-of-the-art, Human Embryogenesis: Methods and Protocols provides a firm foundation for the successful analysis of the embryogenesis process and an easily accessible description of the limitations and advantages of the techniques proposed, certain to aid all those who wish to further unravel the mysteries of human embryogenesis.
