Thoroughly updated and revised, the new edition of this well-received intermediate-level text integrates descriptive, experimental and molecular approaches to developmental biology. This Second Edition presents new material on regulation, gene action, hormonal control, aging and cancer, and immune systems, and many new photomicrographs. It is designed for courses structured around the life cycle, and is especially suitable for those programs which attract both allied health science students and biology or zoology majors.
