There has not been a book like this for fifty years. In addition to many drawings and plates, the book contains discussions of general chick development and details of the research techniques used. This reference work is essential for researchers studying development and for molecular biologists and biochemists coming to the chick embryo for the first time. It is aimed at researchers, such as molecular geneticists, who wish to use the chick as their standard system, but need instruction on the developmental detail or techniques to use.
* Over 90 photographs of serial sections taken by light microscopy
* Detailed labelling and accompanying diagrams to clarify the position of each section
* Sections covering the period from immediately after fertilization until 13 days of incubation showing all the major anatomical events
* Award-winning plates of the whole embryo stained with aliarin and alcian blue to show skeletal development
* Extensive text and over 60 illustrations covering the development of the early embryo and the establishment of the organ systems
