Essentials of Domestic Animal Embryology is a comprehensive, modern treatment of the subject dealing with all organ systems and including important molecular aspects of animal development. Written with the student in mind, the text covers embryology of the domestic species, both general (development from formation of the gametes, through fertilization and initial embryogenesis, up to organ formation) and special (development of the organ systems). It also includes sections on teratology, assisted reproduction technologies, societal relevance, and the implications for current veterinary practice of a long-established science.
Students of veterinary medicine, animal science, biomedical sciences and biotechnology, at both undergraduate and graduate stages of their careers, will find this volume essential for their needs. The international experience of the authors has been applied to produce a textbook of international relevance, likely to remain an important resource for many years to come.
"However, this work remains an excellent reference & study handbook for which many embryologists and veterinary students have waited so long since the book by Noden and de Lahunta went out of press. More than the work of McGeady et al., the Essentials of Domestic Animal Embryology by Hyttel et al. is a worthy successor of the latter. It is contemporary in all fields: its approach of the subject, its style and volume, the language, the huge amount of illustrations... and I'm sure it will serve as a reference handbook for many years." Pieter Cornillie Lecturer in Veterinary Embryology at Ghent University May 2010
