Developmental biology is a newly-developing subject that is attracting much interest because of exciting findings being made using a combination of classical embryo manipulation with more modern techniques. This book brings together for the first time, and in comprehensive, easy-to-followprotocols, practical instructions for all of the main techniques, from traditional embryology to cellular and molecular methods. It includes complete reprints of all the stage tables in common use for the main laboratory species. It will become an essential addition to laboratory benches of thoseusing any technique as applied to embryos, cells, or tissues. It will also help teachers to design practical classes suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses.

Editorial Reviews

'this book will be widely welcomed ... the ability to tackle a developmental problem in a variety of different species is increasingly valuable; having the relevant methods to hand will make this type of approach easier and more productive ... highly recommended and sensibly priced for thebiologist on a shoestring.'Justin Grindley, TIG, September 1994, Vol. 10.
