Written by one of the most consulted authorities on the subject,Atlas of Developmental Field Anomalies of the Human Skeleton is the pre–eminent resource for developmental defects of the skeleton. This guide focuses on localized bone structures utilizing the morphogenetic approach that addresses the origins of variability within specific developmental fields during embryonic development. Drawings and photographs make up most of the text, forming a picture atlas with descriptive text for each group of illustrations. Each section and subdivision is accompanied by brief discussions and drawings of morphogenetic development.

Review Text

  • By William on 21 October 2013

    This is a very well written book covering the many developmental abnormalities that can arise in our bony tissues. It is very well illustrated both with photos but also with very accurate and useful hand drawings showing and explaining the abnormal anatomy.The author does point out that certain infection suffered by the mother while pregnant can cause abnormal bony anatomy but does not cover trauma or nutritional causes.The most puzzling oversight is that the pelvic girdle is not comprehensively covered.This book is ideal for anyone studying paleopathology, orthopaedics and would also be very useful for any student of palaeoanthropology, which makes slight regrettable that the author does not discuss evolutionary pressures that can also relate to the variation and production of skeletal anomalies.I hope this review does not read as being too critical, as this is a fantastic book. I just hope that the author addresses some of these issues for a 2nd addition.

    This book is essentially for those practising or studying in the medical field, in that it is considered to be an essential resource for skeletal biologists, medical specialists in medical disorders and archaeologists.It is the only book which examines developmental anomalies for the entire skeleton from head to toe.It is A4 sized glossy and beautifully presented book, highly visual in that it is beautifully and clearly illustrated with skeletal pictures, technical drawings, diagrams and photographs.It also refers to recent research in this area, and takes it to another level, but is too in-depth for general readers – definitely one for the specialists.
