Human Embryology and Developmental Biology

One would think that by the time a textbook is entering its sixth edition, finding something new to say about it would be difficult. The pace of progress in embryology, however, ensures that each edition is brimming with new facts and new interpretations of old facts. As was the case in the last edition, the major difficulty is deciding what is appropriate to include in a textbook. Most new findings at the level of the cell and above have been included.
At the molecular level, however, I have chosen to highlight principally major pathways and molecules. Even this approach is proving to be increasingly difficult because at the molecular level, much of the action takes place in the form of networks rather than straightforward linear pathways. As has been the approach in previous editions, I have often selected one or a small number of genes or modifying factors that are involved in the construction of a particular structure instead of providing a string of many molecules that might not be very illuminating to the beginning student.
Those familiar with the previous edition will note a large number of new illustrations. The new drawings come from the digital pen of my highly talented artist, Alexandra Baker, who has the remarkable talent of converting my preliminary sketches into beautiful and user- friendly figures. This edition also includes a large number of photographs from the research literature and a variety of other sources that illustrate, with real examples, points that are highlighted in the text. Of particular note are additional photographs from Dr. Jan Jirásek, who assembled a wonderful collection of human embryos and found new ways to represent them in film.
