Advances in Morphogenesis, Volume 2 considers the significant advances in various aspects of morphogenesis. This book is composed of nine chapters that cover the morphological and biochemical aspects of cell growth and development.
The opening chapter deals with the principles and phenomena of morphogenesis characteristic of ciliate protozoa Stentor. The succeeding chapters examine the phenomena of symmetrization in amphibian, birds, reptiles, and fish, and discuss comparative biochemical studies on amphibian and invertebrate. These topics are followed by surveys on the histochemical and morpholopgical studies of limb morphogenesis in vertebrates. Other chapters are devoted to embryonic and larval development, as well as the regeneration in certain group of animals.
This book is directed primarily to developmental biologists.
