Epithelia are one of the commonest tissue types in the animal kingdom. Chapters from leading scientists in the major international research laboratories use examples from different systems to illustrate the form and function of epithelia. An important theme is the way in which epithelial cells differentiate to specialized tissue - reversal of this process occurs when cells become tumorigenic.

Editorial Reviews

This text will be a valuable reference for students and research workers - Biological Abstracts; ...very up-to-date. Myriads of references...Tom Fleming has done an excellent job. He seems to have chosen all the right people, briefed them thoroughly on what he wanted and, as a result, has produced a volume which, although diverse in authorship, is remarkably consistent...I don't think it will age as fast as some similar volumes because of the quality of reviews and because of their comprehensive nature. Well done, Tom and Chapman and Hall - British Society for Cell Biology Newsletter; Tom Fleming has assembled a group of 13 articles, many from highly respected groups, that probe diverse topics ranging from details of epithelial structure of the development of a variety of epithelial tissues. The result is a wide-ranging and unique perspective (giving a full picture of how epithelial tissues are formed and how they work)... - Trends in Cell Biology
