Biology of the Reptilia, Volume 14, Development A is the first in a two-volume set that deals exclusively with the developmental biology of reptiles.
Beginning with an account that puts the field into perspective and includes sources ot embryological materials, Biology of the Reptilia, Volume 14, Development A focuses on turtles, marine turtles, crocodilians, and Sphenodon. It reviews contemporary research with special accounts of oogenesis, the evelopment of the integuments, the immune system, and the pituitary.
The contributors to this volume, a distinguished international group of experts, summarize the state of our knowledge of reptilian developmental patterns, laying the groundwork for future research and providing a guide to the requisite ecological and behavioral literature.
Each chapter of this volume is fully illustrated. Extensive tables and reference lists are designed to support ongoing research in these areas.
