    Default Developments of the Avian Embryo: A Behavioural and Physiological Study

    Development of the Avian Embryo: A Behavioural and Physiological Study

    by B. M. Freeman, Margaret A. Vince

    Pages: 362 pages
    Publisher: ---
    Edition: 1st, 1974
    Language: English

    ISBN-13: 978-9400957121


    Development of the embryo is considered in two sections, entitled 'Behaviour' and 'Physiology'. It would be easy to argue that 'Behaviour' is not a fitting word to describe a section which deals systematically with development of the various systems and requirements for successful hatching but this part is so interesting, even to those who are not normally concerned with birds, that the reader will not quibble. Rather will he lose himself in the description of communication between parent and embryo and between clutch-mates before they hatch. Synchronization of hatching is particularly well described. Throughout, description of experimental methods is sufficient to keep the reader interested but not bored. The section on Physiology, though not such compulsive reading, is well-presented, comprehensive and easy to grasp. The chapters on newly hatched birds would repay study by poultry keepers. Students of embryology will find the appendices particularly useful. 'This book is intended primarily for the research student and established research workers, but students specialising in embryology should find the text equally valuable'.
