"This new edition is a significant and positive step in presenting a complex field of study to undergraduate students."--Craig M. Scott, Clarion University"I like the boxes in each chapter. Experimental technique boxes work well when the reader just wants to look up a technique. Boxes are also a good way to highlight concepts, or to go into detail on subjects that may or may not be covered in lectures."--Deborah Garrity, Colorado State University"Very clear writing style that the students will appreciate, and very clear figures."--Margaret Saha, College of William and MaryReseña del editor:
The process of biological development is an amazing feat of tightly regulated cellular behaviours - differentiation, movement, and growth - powerful enough to result in the emergence of a highly complex living organism from a single cell, the fertilized egg. Principles of Development clearly illustrates the universal principles that govern this process of development, in a succinct and accessible style. Written by two highly respected and influential developmental biologists, Lewis Wolpert and Cheryll Tickle, it focuses on those systems that best illuminate the common principles covered in the text, and avoids overwhelming the reader with encyclopaedic detail. With co-authors whose expertise spans the discipline, Principles of Development combines a careful exposition of the subject with insights from some of the world's pioneering researchers in developmental biology, guiding the student from the fundamentals through to the latest discoveries in the field. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Principles of Development features For registered adopters of the text: Electronic artwork: Figures from the book are available to download, for use in lectures.
