"The book by Dr. Carlson is a comprehensive manual in the extensive field of biological science dealing with the phenomenon of regeneration and, in particular, with basic mechanisms of tissue and organ repair and restoration in a wide range of animal species, from invertebrates to humans. Being one of the oldest fields in biology, it has recently been recognized as a new field referred to as regenerative biology (or regeneration biology) and has come to the forefront of relevance in view of the demand of modern medicine for the development of new cellular and molecular approaches to the treatment of pathological states, repair of damage from injuries, etc. In this context, the book provides an insight into the fundamentals of this phenomenon in light of the most recent findings is a substantial contribution to the advancement of regenerative biologyâ¦progress in regenerative biology. The clarity of the text, which is enhanced by numerous illustrations in color, and rational distribution of the material by chapters and sections make this book an excellent resource for readers in regenerative biology and related fields."--Russian Journal of Developmental Biology 2010 Volume 41, No. 6
