Current Topics in Developmental Biology provides a comprehensive survey of the major topics in the field of developmental biology. The volumes are valuable to researchers in animal and plant development, as well as to students and professionals who want an introduction to cellular and molecular mechanisms of development. The series has recently passed its 30-year mark, making it the longest-running forum for contemporary issues in developmental biology.

Key Features

* Includes 20 color figures * Latest volume in series, with eight reviews in more than 250 pages * Topics covered include bone remodeling, ex vivo adult stem cell expansion, calcium sensing receptors and more


Developmental biologists, animal and plant cell biologists, and stem cell researchers
