Current Topics in Developmental Biology, Volume 29 surveys the major issues at the forefront of developmental biology. This volume, like others in the serial, is valuable to researchers in the fields of animal and plant development, and to students and other professionals who want an introduction to current topics in cellular and molecular approaches to developmental biology. Volume 29s chapters on the nervous system, reproductive system, and flowering introduce new models and concepts for understanding these processes.

Key Features

Essential reading for anyone interested in:

  • Development of the nervous system
  • Development of the reproductive system
  • Flowering in plants
  • Roles of homeobox-related transcription factors, and growth factors in axis and organ development


Graduate students and researchers in developmental, cell, and neurobiology as well as genetics, molecular biology, and plant science.
