Product Overview

The purpose of this book is to act as a resource on anatomical information for developmental biologists trying to elucidate the mechanics underpinning mouse embryogenesis. It contains a series of essays describing the developmental anatomy of the major organ systems and their constituent tissues, together with indexes detailing when tissues first appear and which tissues are present in each stage of mouse embryogenesis. There are also diagrams showing developmental lineages for most of the major organ systems with sufficient explanatory text to make them comprehensible to those as yet unfamiliar with the richness of mouse developmental anatomy.

This book is readable by someone with relatively little knowledge of mouse developmental anatomy, while also being helpful to the professional anatomist.

Editors Note 1 This book is an essential anatomical resource for developmental biologists who need to know about any aspect of mouse developmental anatomy, as well as for geneticists using the mouse embryo as a model. The book is a companion to Kaufman's The Atlas of Mouse Development, and details the developmental anatomy of the early embryo, the transitional tissues, and all the major organ systems. It also provides extensive comparisons with human developmental anatomy, both normal and abnormal. The book has extensive reference indexes detailing developmental stage criteria.The Anatomical Basis of Mouse Development will be a key reference work for anyone who needs to understand developmental anatomy in normal and mutant mice.Key Features* Complements Kaufman's The Atlas of Mouse Development* Gives anatomical descriptions from oogenesis to birth, at a level of detail that goes beyond that found in most literature* Provides detailed explanations for geneticists and molecular biologists with limited anatomical background to help them understand the emergence of all the major structures in the mouse embryo* Contains comprehensive indexes detailing the appearance of over 1000 organs, tissues, and their components at different stages of mouse embryogenesis* Includes comparisons with normal and abnormal human development* Contains over 100 clear line diagrams showing mouse developmental anatomy as well as lineage relationships for the major organ systems
