9780323053853: Human Embryology and Developmental Biology: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access, 4e

This thoroughly revised 4th edition offers both clear descriptions and explanations of human embryonic development based on all the most up-to-date scientific discoveries and understanding. Particular attention is paid to the fundamental aspects of molecular mechanisms in development, introducing you to major families of important developmental molecules. Clinical aspects of development are covered throughout in boxed sections of text. First-rate illustrations and Student Consult access, including online animations, complete this essential package.

  • Integrates contemporary developmental knowledge with classical embryological understanding.
  • Interprets complex molecular developments, to help you learn how exactly the embryo develops.
  • Presents first-rate clinical photos and clear drawings, to help you to memorize and understand normal and abnormal development.
  • Uses clear sections within the chapter and summaries at the end of each to help you navigate this complex subject.
  • Includes review questions at the end of each chapter to help you assess your knowledge.
  • Provides more coverage of molecular development to help you interpret complex information.
  • Helps you to understand the full 3-D development of the embryo and the shapes of the developing forms using detailed animations on Student Consult.
  • Revises the section on the development of the head, particularly useful for dental students.

Review:

"This is an excellent introduction to classical human embryology from a mechanistic and molecular viewpoint. It fills an important niche at a time when medical educators are faced with a conundrum. The genetic basis of disease and development are becoming more stressed in medicine at the same time that there is decreased coverage of classical embryology in the undergraduate medical curriculum, where it has been subjugated to a few lectures in most anatomy courses. The speed of change in the growing field of molecular and developmental biology warrants this revised and updated version. Overall, it improves upon the third edition it replaces, with improved artwork and the new approach to the development of the head that dental students will find very useful." - Mark Jaffe, DPM, MHSA (Nova Southeastern University), from Doody’s Reviews

"This is an excellent content bridge between anatomy and clinical practice: the vignettes are great and the images from the book are available online and downloadable as slides. It could become a best seller as its content and presentation are excellent, and the web-based support is very good." BMA Book Awards 2009 - judges comments
