About this book

Language: German

Martin Heinrich Rathke was a leading embryologist of the 19th century. In the first half, this work characterizes his professional and personal career, which was closely linked to the two cities of Danzig and Königsberg. This part includes extensive archive material revealing hitherto little known facts.

In the second part of his essay Menz looks at the scientific achievements of Rathke. The focus is on his important work on studies of invertebrates, discovering the gill slits in the embryonic development of higher vertebrates and his theories on development principles.

Summary in German:
Martin Heinrich Rathke war einer der führenden Embryologen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die vorliegende Arbeit zeichnet im ersten Teil seinen beruflichen und privaten Werdegang nach, der eng an die beiden Städte Danzig und Königsberg gebunden war. Dabei besticht die Darstellung durch das umfangreiche Archivmaterial, das bisher wenig bekannte Fakten aufdeckt.

Im zweiten Teil ihrer Abhandlung geht Menz den wissenschaftlichen Leistungen Rathkes nach. Im Mittelpunkt stehen seine wichtigen Arbeiten über Studien an Wirbellosen, die Entdeckung der Kiemenspalten in der Embryonalentwicklung der höheren Vertebraten sowie seine Theorien über Entwicklungsprinzipien.
