The third edition of Fetal and Neonatal Physiology represents a substantial enhancement of the second edition and not a mere "tune up" revision. Steven Abman has joined coeditors Richard Polin and William Fox in assembling a 192-chapter, two-volume reference text that covers the intended subject thoroughly and thoughtfully.

More than 30 new chapters have been added on novel topics such as angiogenesis, stem cell biology, pathophysiology of preterm labor, fetal origins of adult disease, maternal and fetal responses to intrauterine inflammation, and the physiology of lactation. There has been considerable re-writing and updating of most of the chapters from the previous edition, as well.
