Widely acclaimed for its scientific authority, pedagogy, clinical relevance, and clear, concise writing, this classic text covers all aspects of embryology of interest to medical, nursing, and health professions students. It features outstanding full-color illustrations and clinical images and photographs, end-of-chapter summaries and Problems to Solve, and Clinical Correlates boxes that provide information on birth defects and other clinical entities directly related to embryologic concepts. This Eleventh Edition has additional images in the birth defects chapters, many new full-color clinical photographs, and recolorized drawings. Other highlights include a glossary, new and updated Problems to Solve, and updated molecular genetics information. A companion Website will include the fully searchable text, interactive review questions and problems, updated Simbryo animations of embryologic system development, and PowerPoint slides for instructors.
