"Invaluable reading for all biologists."
Praise for the Series, --NATURE

"In keeping with the high standards set by the editors... carefully prepared and edited in the customary fine format and well-illustrated style of Academic Press publications... this series is a significant contribution to a science that impinges on many fields."
"A valuable addition to any college library as current reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional scientists."
"Maintains the tradition and set-up of the previous volumes and certainly provides up-to-date data on varied aspects of cytology... a valuable acquisition to any library."
