Summary "Cardiac Development is the only in-depth, single-author reference on heart development. Clearly written, with lavish color illustrations, it provides a more clinical, systematic, up-to-date synthesis of the subject than any other volume, spanning the range from classic anatomic studies to recent findings in molecular biology. Author Margaret Loewy Kirby posits a unifying understanding of heart tube formation from the cardiogenic fields, and the book covers topics that are often omitted from discussions of heart development, such as myocardial function, cardiac innervation, conduction system development, evolutionary developmental biology of the heart, and myocardial stem cells."--BOOK JACKET
