About this book

Focuses on the understanding of the genetic and molecular mechanisms controlling development in animals. Some of these mechanisms are studied within an evolutionary context. A genetic approach to the understanding of behavior, by using Drosophila, is also presented. Extensively referenced.


Control of cell proliferation during animal development and evolution; maternal information and genetic control of oogenesis in drosophila; egg maturation and events leading to embryonic development in the sawfly; developmental aspects of mulberry and nonmulberry silkworm sp; early events associated with sex determination in drosophila; elimination of X chromosomes and the problem of sex determination in sciara ocellaris; mechanisms and evolutionary origins of gene dosage compensation; on how the memory of determination is kept; operational redundancy.
