4.       CHEMICAL EMBRYOLOGY

This branch of embryology includes all those studies which employ various biochemical, biophysical and physi- ological techniques for understanding embryological events at molecular level.

5.       TERATOLOGY

It is the branch of embryology concerned with the study of malformations or birth defects. The substances that cause birth defects are called tetratogens. Phocomalia (poorly developed arms child), Ectomalia (arm less child)
