About this book

Understanding how a multicellular animal develops from a single cell poses one of the greatest challenges in biology. This book follows the developmental process of the fruit fly, Drosophila, from fertilisation through the primitive structural development of the body plan, into the differentiation of the variety of tissues, organs and body parts that together define the fly.

First published in 1992.
