Text and Content

Information relating to the growing embryo and foetus in the womb (unless otherwise stated on a particular page) is from Langman's Medical Embryology, Ninth Edition, TW Sadler, 2003.

Known as the 'Bible of Embryology', it was first published in 1963. This comprehensive text on embryology has long been respected for its scientific authority, pedagogy, and clinical relevance to medical education. Known for its clear and concise writing, the text covers almost all aspects of embryology that would be of interest to medical students and their instructors. The Ninth Edition follows the organisation of previous editions, first structured by chronology and then by system.
