In recent years, the quest for greater understanding of postimplantation mammalian development has led research workers to devise techniques which overcome the problems of inaccessibility posed by embryos in the uterus, and to adapt analytic techniques such as in situ hybridization and antibody labelling to the unique requirements of mammalian embryonic material. This book fufils the need for detailed practical instruction in these methods and additionally provides a copiously illustrated account of the morphological stages of postimplantation development. Research workers in mammalian embryology will find this book invaluable both as a laboratory manual and as a reference work. It also complements Mammalian Development: A Practical Approach (ed. M. Monk), which covers pre-implantation techniques.
