Bruce Carlson's Human Embryology and Developmental Biology is one of the most detailed texts available for those who want to truly understand both the morphological and molecular aspects of human embryological development.

Fully updated in its seventh edition, the book provides a thorough grounding in all aspects of embryology. It presents in detail the molecular and cellular basis for embryological processes, from early development through to development of body systems. It covers examples of congenital malformations and their underlying mechanisms, and comes complete with clinical vignettes and review questions to support learning.

This book will suit medical and science students taking embryology courses as well as scientists and clinicians who find themselves returning to this topic throughout their careers.

  • Clear and consistent writing style - highly readable and well-focused
  • Extensively illustrated to demystify complex topics
  • Good selection of original photographs of congenital anomalies to assist with identification
  • Review questions and suggested readings for further learning
  • Series of animations of complex embryological processes to accompany the text explanations
  • Clinical correlation boxes, vignettes and summary boxes for quick revision

  • Many new drawings and photographs
  • Thoroughly updated with recent research to advance understanding
  • Expanded treatment of newly understood molecular pathways.

About the Author

Bruce M. Carlson, MD, PhD, is Professor Emeritus of Anatomy in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology in the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor. He served as chair of that department from 1998-2000. He is also Research Professor Emeritus in the school's Institute of Gerontology, of which he was the director from 2000 to 2003.

Professor Carlson writes the majority of the book himself but he has suggested that he may bring in one or two contributors this time round to cover areas that he is not as up to date on as he once was. We have spoken about bringing in a co-author and he is open for this to happen for the 7th edition when he has had time to find someone suitable.
