9780199249398: Principles of Development

Led by Lewis Wolpert, an influential developmental biologist, this distinguished team of authors presents a new and revised edition of the best-selling and popular textbook Principles of Development. Central to their approach is an emphasis on principles and key concepts as well as the idea that understanding how genes control cell behavior is the key to comprehending development. The authors assume that students are familiar with the basics of cell biology and genetics but also provide thorough explanations of all key concepts in the text, such as the control of gene activity. The book focuses on those systems-such as vertebrates and Drosophila-that best illuminate the common principles of development, and also discusses other systems like the nematode and sea urchin. A unique feature of the book is its coverage of plant development, which is usually neglected in other textbooks but has significant relevance to the field of developmental biology. Full of spectacular illustrations and diagrams, Principles of Development, Second Edition, provides the excellent content and quality design of its predecessor, and also incorporates valuable new material.

About the Author:

Lewis Wolpert, Professor of Biology as Applied to Medicine, University College London. Rosa Beddington, Former Head of the Division of Mammalian Development at the National Institute for Medical Research, London (deceased). Thomas Jessell, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, University of Columbia, NY, USA.

Review:

`Review from previous edition Wolpert has done well, both in relation to the selection of which topics to include and in the level of detail at which they are presented ... Wolpert has taken great care to make things as clear and simple as he can.' Nature

`... the illustrations are the best I have ever seen. They are absolutely perfect ... The way in which they illuminate mechanisms, experiments and results will be a great help to students. ...All aspects of biology, from the historical to the epistemological, are beautifully presented. ...I am not a plant biologist but I agree that here we have `the best presentation of plant development available' (Scott Poethig, Philadelphia), even though the main focus is on vertebrates and Drosophila and other animal systems.' European Journal of Histochemistry

"Wolpert et al. employs many vivid, full-colour diagrams and drawings, supplemented with photographs. For the student, the illustrations are helpful for demonstrating complex topics." BioEssays, April 2003.
