The Teratology Society has recently published a
book titled: Teratology Primer, in order to raise awareness about
the field of teratology. Intended as an overview of the field,
the book provides a considerable amount of information and references
with a collection of interesting and current topics regarding
birth defects written by experts in their areas of specialty.
Teratology Primer addresses issues such as explaining how exposure
to chemical or physical agents can cause malformations, how exposure
to germ cells can affect pregnancy outcome, what infections increase
the risk of birth defects, and what are the affects of alcohol
use during pregnancy.
The book is intended mainly for students to understand the career
choices available in the field of teratology. The Teratology Society
has made this book free of charge for college students, medical
and grad students, and residents. The book is also available at
a nominal cost of $10 to those who are not in training.
