This book is an essential anatomical resource for developmental biologists who need to know about any aspect of mouse developmental anatomy, as well as for geneticists using the mouse embryo as a model. The book is a companion to Kaufman's The Atlas of Mouse Development, and details the developmental anatomy of the early embryo, the transitional tissues, and all the major organ systems. It also provides extensive comparisons with human developmental anatomy, both normal and abnormal. The book has extensive reference indexes detailing developmental stage criteria.

The Anatomical Basis of Mouse Development will be a key reference work for anyone who needs to understand developmental anatomy in normal and mutant mice.

Review quote

"The magnificent book now presented by Matthew Kaufman and Jonathan Bard may be taken as the authoritative statement on mouse embryology, based on a lifetime of study...this fine book is essential for all molecular biologists, geneticists and developmental biologists using the mouse as a model, especially if they have little anatomical background."
-Journal of Anatomy, Volume 197, Part 2, August 2000

About M.H. Kaufman

Jonathan Bard is a developmental biologist whose main interests are kidney development, the generation of structures in embryos and bioinformatics. He currently works on the cellular basis of nephron formation and on making ontologies of vertebrate anatomy for gene-expression databases (see" target="_blank">
