Science produces fascinating puzzles: why is there such a range of
placental structures when other mammalian organs are so
structurally uniform ? Why and how did the different placental
structures evolve ? Comparative placental studies can facilitate
the identification of the common factors in placental growth,
differentiation and function and their relevance to possible
evolutionary pathways. Comparative Placentation is the only book
presenting up-to-date data illustrating the great variety of
structure but uniform function of vertebrate placentas from fish to
man. This information is essential for selection of suitable models
to investigate particular practical problems of impaired or
anomalous growth in human and animal placentation. The unique
collection of the best light and electron micrographs from the last
thirtyfive years which precisely illustrate the structural range in
each taxon, make the book the most authoritative publication in
this field and a vital source of information for anyone interested
on reproductive physiology, anatomy and medicine.
