Figure 15.27

Endodermal development of a human embryo. The color illustration below is a sagittal view of the 6-week embryo. The stomach region has begun to dilate, and the pancreas is represented by two buds that will eventually fuse. The upper row of illustrations are sections through the embryo at the plane indicated, showing the fates of the pharyngeal pouches. The first forms the external auditory passages, while the second pouch expands, eventually covering pouches 2, 3, and 4. (After Larsen 1993.)
