The Cell: Biochemistry, Physiology, Morphology, Volume III: Meiosis and Mitosis covers chapters on meiosis and mitosis. The book discusses meiosis with regard to the meiotic behavior of chromosomes; the anomalous meiotic behavior in organisms with localized centromeres and in forms with nonlocalized centromeres; and the nature of the synaptic force. The text also describes the mechanism of crossing over; the relationship of chiasmata to crossing over and metaphase pairing; and the reductional versus equational disjunction. The process of mitosis and the physiology of cell division are also considered. The book further tackles the significance of cell division and chromosomes; the essential mitotic plan and its variants; the preparations for mitosis; and the transition period. The text also demonstrates the time course of mitosis; the mobilization of the mitotic apparatus; metakinesis; the metaphase; the mitotic apparatus; anaphase; telophase; cytokinesis; and the physiology of the dividing cell. Physiological reproduction; mitotic rhythms and experimental synchronization; and the blockage and stimulation of division are also encompassed. Biologists, microbiologists, zoologists, and botanists will find the book invaluable.
