"Incorporating the many new terms that have emerged since the first edition was published, this new edition gives readers the standard reference for the field today. Topics covered range from germ layers, induction, and fundamental terminology, through to RNAi, evo-devo, and stem cell differentiation, hallmarks of modern developmental biology and embryology. Also included in the new edition are major discoveries and significant scientists that comprise the history and growth of this field. The dictionary provides both basic background needed by students, through more advanced topics for researchers and peers in related disciplines."--Provided by publisher.

The role of developmental biology and embryology in the life and medical sciences today is increasing at an unprecedented rate. For example, the first Nobel Prize awarded to an embryologist or developmental biologist was awarded in 1935 to Hans Spemann "for his discovery of the organizer effect in embryonic development"; the second was awarded jointly in 1995 to Edward B. Lewis, Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard and Eric F. Wieschaus "for their discoveries concerning the genetic control of early embryonic development"; eight Nobel Prizes have been awarded since 2000 in fields that play roles in developmental biology, the most recent being the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine awarded jointly to Sir John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka "for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent" . Medical schools are opening divisions devoted to applying the principles of developmental biology to combat diseases and repair injuries. Developmental biology is a burgeoning discipline within biology, as well as being one of its most rapidly expanding intellectual frontiers. A Dictionary of Human Developmental Biology and Embryology is needed in the field today because the terminology relevant to the human aspect of this field has exploded, due to the incredible progress that has been made in the understanding and, in some instances, in the manipulation of human development. Evidence in support of this assertion is the awarding of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology for work done in this field. Additionally, Departments of Regenerative Medicine and Departments of Translational Medicine are springing up at major medical centers around the globe. Topics covered will range from stem cells (embryonic, adult, and iPSCs, etc.) to teratology. Fundamental terminology in the field of human developmental biology, since the beginning of the field through RNAi, epigenesis, Yamanaka factors, etc. and clinical application of such research, will be the foundation of this book. In addition, the Dictionary will include the major discoveries and significant scientists that comprise the history and current development of the field. The dictionary will provide both the basic background terminology needed by pre-health professions/biology major undergraduate students and early-stage graduate students, as well as being a reference of interest to university professors, researchers and peers in related disciplines.

Essential Developmental Biology is a comprehensive, richly illustrated introduction to all aspects of developmental biology. Written in a clear and accessible style, the third edition of this popular textbook has been expanded and updated In addition, an accompanying website - www.essentialdevelopmentalbiology.com- provides instructional materials for both student and lecturer use, including animated developmental processes, a photo gallery of selected model organisms, and all artwork in downloadable format. With an emphasis throughout on the evidence underpinning the main conclusions, this book is an essential text for both introductory and more advanced courses in developmental biology. Shortlisted for the Society of Biology Book Awards 2013 in the Undergraduate Textbook category. Reviews of the Second Edition: "The second edition is a must have for anyone interested in development biology. New findings in hot fields such as stem cells, regeneration, and aging should make it attractive to a wide readership. Overall, the book is concise, well structured, and illustrated. I can highly recommend it." —Peter Gruss, Max Planck Society "I have always found Jonathan Slack's writing thoughtful, provocative, and engaging, and simply fun to read. This effort is no exception. Every student of developmental biology should experience his holistic yet analytical view of the subject." —Margaret Saha, College of William & Mary

Langman's Medical Embryology covers embryology for medical, nursing, and health professions students with a strong clinical emphasis. The text is highly valued as a teaching and learning resource for its clinical correlation boxes, summaries, problems to solve, illustrations and clinical images, and clear, concise writing style—all of which make the subject matter accessible to students and relevant to instructors. Online material includes Simbryo—an animation program showing processes, organs, and systems developing in human embryos—as well as review questions and full text online. A separate Faculty Image Bank and PowerPoint presentations are also available.
