Embryology : Constructing the Organism - 97 edition

Embryology : Constructing the Organism (ISBN10: 0878932372; ISBN13: 9780878932375)
ISBN13: 978-0878932375
ISBN10: 0878932372

Summary: Comparative embryology, a fascinating field in its own right, has become increasingly more important due to renewed interest in the developmental mechanisms of evolution. Here is what may well be the first comparative embryology text in over a century that brings together invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants. Written by experts in each area, this volume covers animal development phylum by phylum, from poriferans and mesozoans through arthropods and mammals. Each ve
rtebrate class is given its own chapter, and the book includes special chapters on larval forms and on plant development.

Embryology: Constructing the Organism concentrates on the descriptive and experimental aspects of embryology. It brings the development of the main multicellular phyla into a single easy-to-read and well-illustrated volume. This book differs from standard developmental biology texts in that it includes many organisms whose development is not well understood on a cellular or molecular level.

Embryology: Constructing the Organism integrates new information with the classic studies. This text is ideal for laboratory-based courses in embryology that respect both the similarities between groups as well as the differences that make the embryology of each group unique.
