Table of Contents
  • Provides a clear, detailed synopsis of the anatomical structures of developmental model organisms, enabling students to reach a deeper understanding of development.
  • Structures in this atlas are referred to by multiple terms so students who consult the references can easily adapt this information.
  • Staging tables are included in the appendix to give students a more complete view of the timing of development.
  • The atlas uses a diversity of animal models at multiple developmental stages, enabling students to find the exact organism available in class. To ensure this, nearly all images come from commercially prepared specimens.
