Originally published in 1952 as part of the Cambridge Biological Studies series, The Epigenetics of Birds presents contemporary theories on embryology using the example of the bird embryo. Waddington reviews the modern experimental embryology of birds, and touches on topics such as plumage development and the developmental actions of mutant genes. The Epigenetics of Birds will be of value to anyone with an interest in embryology or the history of epigenetics.
