ABSTRACT

Although written primarily for college use, this volume contains a large amount of material that will be of interest and assistance to the average physician. As the author suggests, it is important to be able to give sound advice on heredity to the many persons who turn to physicians for this help, and there can be no question that genetic counseling is becoming a field of increasing importance.

Among these may be included prenatal interactions, sex determination, consanguinity, medicolegal applications of genetics, sex linkage, multifactor inheritance and heredity and environment.

Stimulus to more complete understanding of the topics presented is provided in problems at the end of each chapter. Also of value are extensive reference lists after
