About this book

Originally published in 1916, Growth in Length contains the text of three lectures delivered by Richard Assheton to zoology students at the University of London in 1913 on the subject of how the vertebrate embryo grows along its main axis. An essay by Assheton from 1910 on the mechanics of gastrulation is also included. Growth in Length will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of embryology.
