Atlas of Xenopus Development
Springer, Jan 1, 1999 - Medical - 93 pages
Developmental biology attracts scientists from many different areas of biology, and the amphibian Xenopus holds a special place among the organisms studied as a model of vertebrate development. Until now, no recently published atlas existed to aid researchers and students coming to the Xenopus embryo for the first time.
The present book satisfies this need. With its synthesizing approach and its generous provision of beautiful scanning, transmission, and light microscopy images, this unique volume will be a standard reference not only for developmental biologists but for all students of embryology, histology, and comparative anatomy.
