Preface

In these " Outlines" the student is introduced to the study of Chordate development through the embryological history of Amphioxus. Whether or not Amphioxus represents a truly primitive type of development, it affords, in simple diagrammatic style, the essentials of early Chordate ontogeny. In many respects the later phases of its history are highly modified, but this need be no objection to its use as an introductory type, since it may serve immediately to put the student upon his guard against a too exact phylogenetic interpretation of embryological facts.


Following this is a rather full account of the development of the frog, a form that represents, better than any other single type, what we may regard as the general type of Chordate development. The chapters on the chick are relatively briefer and emphasis is laid upon the embryonic membranes, and upon the early phases of development, which represent the most frequent modifications of the type of Chordate development, modifications correlated with the presence of the large yolk accumulation of the Sauropsid ovum.


It is believed that the chapters on the frog and chick have been written in such a way that either form may be omitted, in a brief course of study. Or in case the study of the early development of the frog is desired as a comparative introduction to the study of the embryology of the chick, Chapter III, on the organogeny of the frog, may be omitted without serious interruption of the continuity of such a course.


The final chapter on the Mammal includes only those phases of development that are of chief interest to the general student, namely, the earlier stages in the formation of the embryo, the establishment of its relation with the maternal organism,, the development of the embryonic membranes and appendages, and the development of the external form of the human embryo.


Several authors and publishers have very kindly permitted the use of illustrations or cliches from their works. Especial acknowledgement is made to Professor F. R. Lillie for permission to use a considerable number of the illustrations in his " Development of the Chick" (Henry Holt and Co.). I am also indebted to Professor C. S. Minot and P. Blakiston's Son and Co., for several cliches from their " Laboratory Text-book of Embryology"; to Professor J. Playfair McMurrich and P. Blakiston's Son and Co., for cliches from their " Development of the Human Body"; to Messrs. Longmans Green and Co., for cliches from "Quain's Anatomy"; to Messrs. G. P. Putnam and Co., for permission to redraw, with some modifications in most instances, certain illustrations in Marshall's " Vertebrate Embryology"; to Professor T. H. Morgan and The Macmillan Company, for cliches from their Development" of the Frog's Egg"; and to Herr Gustav Fischer and the respective authors, for cliches from 0. Hertwig's "Handbuch der vergleichenden und experimentellen Entwickelungslehre der Wirbeltiere" ; 0. Hertwig's "Lehrbuch der Entwickelungsgeschichte des Menschen und der Wirbeltiere"; and H. E. Ziegler's "Lehrbuch der vergleichenden Entwickelungsgeschichte der niederen Wirbeltiere." In all cases the cuts thus borrowed are separately acknowledged in the figure legends. I desire also to express my debt to the authorities of the Johns Hopkins University, for library facilities generously afforded.
