Veterinary Embryology, 2nd Edition,has been updated to reflect the many changes that have developed both in an improved understanding of molecular features of embryology and in the rapid advances in the manipulation of embryonic cells, particularly stem cells. The text is written by an expert team, all of whom have extensive experience in the teaching of veterinary embryology and cognate subjects.

Now in full-colour throughout, the text provides information relevant to many subjects taught in preclinical, paraclinical and clinical years of veterinary programmes. Early chapters describe and explain sequential events relating to the division, growth and differentiation of cells and to the formation of foetal membranes, implantation and placentation. Succeeding chapters trace the origin, growth, development and maturation of the major body systems. Age determination of the embryo and foetus is reviewed, as are the genetic, chromosomal and environmental factors which adversely affect pre-natal development. Four new chapters have been added, covering historical aspects of embryology, stem cells, embryo mortality in domestic species and assisted reproductive technologies used in domestic animals.

A reading list at the end of each chapter offers additional sources of information, and tables, flow diagrams and numerous hand-drawn illustrations – used extensively to explain organogenesis and system development – support the concepts presented in the text.
