A newly revised edition of the standard reference for the field
today?updated with new terms, major discoveries, significant
scientists, and illustrations

Developmental biology is the study of the mechanisms of
development, differentiation, and growth in animals and plants at
the molecular, cellular, and genetic levels. The discipline has
gained prominence in part due to new interdisciplinary approaches
and advances in technology, which have led to the rapid emergence
of new concepts and words. The Dictionary of Developmental
Biology and Embryology
, Second Edition is the first
comprehensive reference focused on the field's terms, research,
history, and people.


This authoritative A-to-Z resource covers classical
morphological and cytological terms along with those from modern
genetics and molecular biology. Extensively cross-referenced, the
Dictionary includes definitions of terms, explanations of concepts,
and biographies of historical figures. Comparative aspects are
described in order to provide a sense of the evolution of
structures, and topics range from fundamental terminology, germ
layers, and induction to RNAi, evo-devo, stem cell differentiation,
and more. Readers will find such features of embryology and
developmental biology as:




  • Vertebrates




  • Invertebrates




  • Plants




  • Developmental genetics




  • Evolutionary developmental biology




  • Molecular developmental biology




  • Medical embryology




The author's premium on accessibility allows readers at all
levels to enhance their vocabulary in their field and understand
terminology beyond their specific focus. Researchers and students
in developmental biology, cell biology, developmental genetics, and
embryology will find the dictionary to be a vital resource.
