About this book

The editors present, in a single volume, a valuable reference source for students of mammalian embryology, genetics, and physiology, Experimental Approaches to Mammalian Embryonic Development provides a thorough overview of the field of embryonic development – its current status along with possible directions in the future.

"From beginning to end this is a book of highest quality in content and readability. Moreover, it defines many areas for future research in mammalian embryology."
- Science

" [...] should indeed be a valuable addition to the library of any serious student of the mammalian embryo."
- Nature
