Heart Development, Volume 342
Richard P. Harvey, Nadia Rosenthal
Academic Press, 1999 - Medical - 530 pages
This book examines recent studies revealing that the same genes are responsible for development of parallel features between species, and that the heart develops similarly across all species. It includes research being conducted concerning cardiac development, tissue interaction, and organ formation. The text attempts to provide a greater understanding of the underlying causes of heart failure, heart muscle diseases, congenital malformations, and other heart diseases and defects.
* Each chapter has been solicited from a recognized leader in the field, and covers a topic of active research in cardiovascular biology
* Chapters incorporate a review of classical findings with comprehensive coverage of the latest advances
* Abundant color plates in a consistent and professional artistic style provide clear and attractive illustrations of central concepts
* Color slides of illustrations for seminars or teaching purposes are available with each volume
