Stephen G. Gilbert adds to his acclaimed series of dissection guides with Pictorial Anatomy of the Fetal Pig.
Through his book on fetal pig anatomy, Stephen G. Gilbert begins to explain the important differences of warm and cold-blooded animals. He treats his guide as a tool to further understand explanations of fetal pig form and function; and how the internal environment (the biological systems inside the animal) interacts with the external environment. Gilbert uses this guide not only to teach anatomy, but also to give a sufficient vocabulary to students so they can use it to explain biological processes of the organism.
In detailed, elaborate drawings of the various biological systems of the fetal pig, instructors are able to point out anatomical features that cannot be dissected in detail by the learning student. Nor is any student of pig anatomy left without a sufficient means to know and communicate the layers of fetal pig form.

This book was originally designed as a pictorial supplement to be used in connection with other texts. At the request of many teachers, I have expanded the coverage in this edition to include dissecting instructions, descriptive text, and some additional material on the skeleton, muscles, and nervous system.- Stephen G.
