Introduction

There are several textbook resources referred to in UNSW Embryology and there are some additional excellent textbooks listed below that cover embryology or more broadly developmental biology. I do not intend to endorse any specific textbook, this page simply lists, and provides links too, those I have seen and/or used.

I am indebted in preparing this online resource to the many wonderful embryology textbooks that are available. Students studying embryology should look through these in their library and select the one which most suits their study methods.

Note that if you do not have easy textbook access, online notes pages include relevant website links (Links:) shown at the bottom of the Introduction section on each page.
