Media reviews

Reviews of previous editions:

"Development Biology is a very readable, balanced, and thorough introduction covering all the most important aspects of this fascinating field. This is an excellent textbook for introducing beginners, advanced students, and even experts from other fields to the beauty and complexity of developmental and regenerative biology."
– Michael Levin, Tufts University

"This is the definitive developmental biology textbook – a real classic that has been updated to include newly-understood concepts from fast-moving fields. It is inspiring to students to see how quickly the entire field of developmental biology has been transformed into a molecular science."
– Jessica LaMae Whited, Harvard University

"This book is the gold standard in developmental biology. The many micrographs and its comprehensiveness make it an indispensible resource for serious students in the field."
– Jeff Hardin, University of Wisconsin-Madison
