About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1938, this book presents a detailed examination of synthetic embryology. Intended neither as an introductory guide nor a systematic treatise, the text presents the most significant material regarding the ontogenetic problem as matters stood at the time of publication. Illustrative figures and a bibliographical index are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the development of embryology and the history of science.
