Object Description

This movie was taken in ovo. It spans the first 43 hours of development of the Japanese quail (10 minutes per frame). This period corresponds to stage HH2 to the initation of circulation (~HH14).  The movie contains three parts: 1) an introduction of blastoderm organization (00:00-00:17), 2) 43h of quail development with animated descriptions (00:17-00:59), and 3) 43h of quail development uninterrupted (00:59-01:20).
