not yet rated|write a review
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 clearlyillustrates the universal principles that govern this process of development in a succinct and accessible style. Cutting-edge science is explained clearly and succinctly, richly illustrated with a variety of custom drawn figures, animations, and online resources. A focus on the key principles of development throughout the text provides a framework on which a richer understanding of specific topics can bebuilt.
