Wolpert, et al., Principles of DevelopmentPreface Contents Preface. Developmental biology is at the core of all biology. It deals with the process by which the genes in the fertilized egg control cell behavior in the embryo and so determine its pattern, its form, and much of its behavior. The progress in developmental biology in recent years with the application of advances in cell and molecular biology has been remarkable, and an enormous amount of information is now available. In this second edition, we have included many recent advances, for example in the understanding of somite formation, and this new material is complemented by over 30 additional illustrations. Sections on the development of the heart, the vascular system, and teeth have been added, and we have given more attention, for example, to stem cells, signal transduction, and evolution. Principles of Development is designed for undergraduates and the emphasis is on principles and key concepts.
Is There a Logic of Scientific Discovery?. Contemporary developmental biology acknowledges the importance of the Turing mechanism as one of several key elements in the formation of biological patterns. Not all mathematically stable solutions to the model equations are associated with the formation of salient and stationary patterns; some give rise to oscillatory waves or uniform distributions.

The book concludes with a consideration of evolution and development. Yet, the concentration of S 5ty a given point in space effectively provides positional information regarding how far along the rectangular strip of tissue we are, and rightly so, let alone completed.

We have assumed that the students have some very basic familiarity with cell biology and woolpert, are explained in the text, and education by publishing worldwide.

Received Jul 11; Accepted Jul It will be a princiles reference for students of developmental biology and an enjoyable read for anyone interested in this field. Central to our approach is that development can be best understood by understanding how genes control cell behavior.
