About The Book

This insightful compilation offers comprehensive account of the fundamental principles of embryology. It not only introduces reproductive physiology, sexual interactions, and environmental responses, but also provides the physiological and endocrinological background. All important points are illustrated diagramatically. The title is not intended to be comprehensive nor could it be at length, but its concentration as putting across the basic principles of the subject as briefly and lucidly as possible. It does this with the aid of careful selected examples: some recent and other classic of the field. In order to create a book which is written within the economy as well as the physical grasp of the student, only the main essentials of each topic have been presented. This book in fact serves a dual function: certainly will be of interest of biochemistry, nursing, and paramedical students, it will also be consulted as a reference by teachers.

This book integrates 28 chapters and many of them are chiefly emphasized. These include: fertilization, types of cleavage, gastrulation, metamorphosis, induction, foetal membranes, placentation, virgin reproduction, sex and procreation, differentiation, nucleocytoplasmic interaction and development of chordates from balanoglossus to mammals.
