By Frank J. Dye(auth.)

A newly revised version of the traditional reference for the sphere today?updated with new phrases, significant discoveries, major scientists, and illustrations

Developmental biology is the research of the mechanisms of improvement, differentiation, and progress in animals and crops on the molecular, mobile, and genetic degrees. The self-discipline has received prominence partly because of new interdisciplinary methods and advances in expertise, that have resulted in the quick emergence of recent suggestions and phrases. The Dictionary of Developmental Biology and Embryology, moment version is the 1st accomplished reference interested by the field's phrases, learn, historical past, and people.

This authoritative A-to-Z source covers classical morphological and cytological phrases in addition to these from smooth genetics and molecular biology. broadly cross-referenced, the Dictionary comprises definitions of phrases, motives of techniques, and biographies of old figures. Comparative points are defined so that it will supply a feeling of the evolution of buildings, and themes variety from primary terminology, germ layers, and induction to RNAi, evo-devo, stem mobile differentiation, and extra. Readers will locate such positive aspects of embryology and developmental biology as:

  • Vertebrates

  • Invertebrates

  • Plants

  • Developmental genetics

  • Evolutionary developmental biology

  • Molecular developmental biology

  • Medical embryology

The author's top rate on accessibility permits readers in any respect degrees to augment their vocabulary of their box and comprehend terminology past their particular concentration. Researchers and scholars in developmental biology, mobile biology, developmental genetics, and embryology will locate the dictionary to be an essential resource.
