It is analogous to the Terminologia Anatomica (TA), which standardizes terminology for adult human anatomy and which deals primarily with naked-eye adult antomy. It succeeds the Nomina Embryologica, which was included as a component of the Nomina Anatomica.
It was not included in the original version of the TA.
The Terminologia Embryologica (TE) is a standardized list of words to be used in the description of prenatal human ontogeny, embryologic and fetal structures. It is produced by the Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology.
It is written as a new book from the beginning, and takes into account the TA and the Terminologia Histologica (TH), which was published in 2008. It is planned to be published in 2010.[dated info]
