Description

Metamorphosis addresses various facets of postembryonic development, particularly signal transduction, morphogenesis, cell-cell interactions, and programmed cell death. A key feature of the book is its exploration of the molecular mechanisms underlying these processes.

Key Features

  • Hormonal regulation of development
  • The mechanisms of hormone action
  • The steroid/thyroid hormone receptor family
  • Morphogenesis and programmed cell death
