Originally published in 1934 as part of the Cambridge Comparative Physiology series, The Elements of Experimental Embryology discusses the process of tissue differentiation in developing embryos of a variety of species. Huxley and de Beer examine important aspects of development such as symmetry, the mosaic stage of differentiation and the relationship between hereditary factors and differentiation. The Elements of Experimental Embryology will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of science or embryology.
