This popular text makes it surprisingly easy for you to gain an
in-depth understanding of human embryology. Engaging and richly
illustrated, it examines all aspects of human development,
emphasising both basic concepts and relevant clinical problems. It
presents a week-by-week and stage-by-stage view of how foetal
organs and systems develop, why and when birth defects occur, and
the roles the placenta and fetal membranes play in development.
