Living Embryos: An Introduction to the Study of Animal Development, Revised Second Edition presents the processes of development as seen throughout the animal kingdom. This book discusses the development of the organ systems of vertebrates. Comprised of 41 chapters, this edition starts with an overview of the history of the study of embryology, which is concerned with the process by which the adult arises from the fertilized egg. This text then discusses the role of the sperm in the determination of bilateral symmetry. Other chapters consider the development of the frog in order to give a basis for comparison with other species. This book discusses as well the structure of the hen's egg and illustrates the various stages of the development of the chick. The final chapter deals with animal evolution, which produces a wide variety of animal forms. Embryologists, zoologists, medical students, graduate students, university lecturers, and teachers will find this book extremely useful.
