About this book

Examines spatial recognition in single cells during animal development and the tissues and organs they go on to form.

...an important addition to the developmental biologist's bookshelves. Science "...an invaluable source of reference. In particular, the author has helped rescue from oblivion many classical experimental results that have progressively disappeared from textbooks simply because they either could not be approached by contemporary molecular techniques, or simply because they could not be explained by existing theoretical models." Pere Alberch, Quarterly Review of Biology
