About this book

For upper-level undergraduate/graduate-level courses in Developmental Biology, Embryology, Cell and Developmental Biology in Biology, Zoology, and Cell/Developmental Biology departments. Laboratory Studies is the most comprehensive laboratory guide available in the field of developmental biology and embryology, and is written to allow students to study material independently-without the need for supplemental materials. It is the only text/manual to integrate a laboratory-combining descriptive and experimental studies on living embryos-with a complete atlas of embryonic development viewed from the most technologically enhanced viewpoints. It features broad coverage (sea urchin, frog, chick, mouse, and pig-all popular educational and research models) and is the only guide to provide detailed descriptions of a wide-range of developing stages.
