Developing organisms are systems in which the geometry, dynamics, and boundary conditions are all changing in the course of morphogenesis. The morphogenesis of cells and organisms appear to be mediated in part by the mechanically active components of the cytoskeleton. Mechanical forces have long been considered secondary to the effects of molecular mechanisms in cell growth, differentiation, and development. This volume explores the role of mechanical forces in cell growth and development and demonstrates its importance. This volume will prove invaluable to all biologists interested in the fundamentals of mechanical forces in development, from the advanced to the graduate researcher.

Kwang Jeon received his Ph.D. in cell physiology at King’s College, University of London, UK, in 1964 and taught at SUNY Buffalo and University of Tennessee. His research was concerned with the biogenesis and function of cell components in two major areas: Integration of intracellular symbionts into host cells leading to the acquisition of new cell components and cell variation; Membrane-protein recycling during endo- and exocytosis.Review:
Praise for the Series
"Invaluable reading for all biologists."
"In keeping with the high standards set by the editors... carefully prepared and edited in the customary fine format and well-illustrated style of Academic Press publications... this series is a significant contribution to a science that impinges on many fields."
--THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY
"A valuable addition to any college library as current reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional scientists."
"Maintains the tradition and set-up of the previous volumes and certainly provides up-to-date data on varied aspects of cytology... a valuable acquisition to any library."
"Should be on the shelf of any biomedical library."
--Alvin Tesler, Northwestern Medical School, in DOODY'S
