The Fundamentals of Human Embryology covers embryonic development, with a unique focus on adult anatomy.
Its goal is to impart to students a comprehensive overview of how the human embryo forms, not only as a basis for the student of human anatomy, but also as a link to abnormalities they may encounter in their clinical careers. Extensively illustrated with labeled line drawings, now enlarged for better visibility, this concise manual will meet the needs of both undergraduate and postgraduate students in the human sciences. Special features include separate chapters on the neural crest, the skull, and osteogenesis; and in-depth coverage of head and neck embryology, including the development of the tooth, for students of dentistry, and speech and audiology. This second edition contains larger diagrams, revised text that complies with the Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology's changes to the Terminologia Embryologica, altered sequencing of some topics to allow the development to flow more logically, and included an appendix of color photographs of congenital abnormalities to help students form a more realistic idea of developmental abnormalities.
