about this item

Gilbert and Barresi continue adapting their developmental biology textbook to fundamental changes in the study of animal development that they integrated into the past two editions, but warn that the pace of change is not slowing down. The field has once more taken up the task of discovering the anatomical and genetic bases of neural organization and behavior--a study deemed to complicated during the 20th century--and that is reflected here. Other changes include the prominence of stem cells, the revolution in lineage studies made possible by in vivo labeling, the impact of the environment on development, and new ideas about how to teach science.
