Textbook which takes a contemporary approach to describing the complex process whereby an egg is transformed into an adult organism.


Development - organisms construct and organize themselves on the basis of inherited information; basic stages, principles and terms of developmental biology; model organisms in developmental biology; comparative review - the phylotypic stage of vertebrates, common versus disuniting features, and aspects of evolution; the egg cell and sperm get a dowry; the start - fertilization and activation of the egg; precisely patterned cleavage divisions are driven by an oscillator; determination - cells are programmed and comitted to their fates; epigenetic pattern formation; differentiation is based upon differential gene expression that is programmed during determination.
