about

In this investigation, the development of different larval pigment patterns in two species of tailed amphibians is used as a model system for a comparative morphogenetic analysis. For researchers in anatomy, developmental biology and cell biology the study presents new data on the interactive behaviour of melanophores and xanthophores, coloured derivatives of the neural crest, during their arrangement into horizontal or vertical cellular arrays. The results provide new insights into how morphogenetic processes can modify developmental events in the embryo leading to phenotypic change. For this reason the book is also of interest for developmental geneticists and evolutionary biologists.
