This serial provides a comprehensive survey of the major topics in the field of developmental biology. These 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 many descriptive figures * Topics covered include the mammalian circadian proteins, cell death, tumor progression, and more * Latest volume in the series that covers six reviews in more than 250 pages


Developmental biologists, cell biologists, genetics researchers, molecular biologists, and plant and animal biologists
