This volume focuses on the structural aspects of cell division - concentrating on both nuclear division (meiosis and mitosis) and cytoplasmic division (cytokinesis). Written as a companion volume to the earlier book in the series - Cell Cycle Control, this book provides an up-to-date accountof developments in this exciting area of cell biology.

Editorial Reviews

...'this book succeeds in providing a detailed and balanced review of an exciting subject and is well recommended to both students interested in the cell cycle and researchers already well acquainted with the field, to whom this book may prove to be a valuable source of reference for allaspects of the mechanics of cell division' Cell Biology International 1999 Vol. 23, No. 12
