Color atlas of embryology
The complex but fascinating field of embryology is presented in this easy-to-understand Thieme Flexibook, complete with 176 color plates. Since the information relevant to medical students is separated from that needed by biologists, both can learn in a focused and time-saving manner. The overview at the beginning of each chapter is also an excellent aid to students. Physicians, biologists and students can delve into any number of topics: from the basics of reproductive biology to general embryology, including the "hot topics" related to cellular and molecular biology.
