Current Topics in Developmental Biology: 38 by Roger A. Pedersen,Gerald P. Schatten

By Roger A. Pedersen,Gerald P. Schatten

This sequence presents a complete survey of the most important subject matters within the box of developmental biology. The volumes are precious to researchers in animal and plant improvement, in addition to to scholars and execs who wish an creation to mobile and molecular mechanisms of improvement. This yr marks a massive milestone for the sequence because it completes its 30th 12 months of book, making it the longest-running discussion board for modern concerns in developmental biology.

The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

A dialogue of the neural crest and neural crest cells, facing their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their mobile derivatives - in either agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the extensive themes of migration and differentiation in general improvement. The e-book additionally considers what is going flawed whilst improvement is misdirected via mutations, or through publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers corresponding to medicinal drugs, alcohol, or extra nutrition A, and comprises discussions of tumours and syndromes and start defects regarding neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the examine of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing in particular with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going immediately to the center of the developmental starting place of edition, the uncooked fabric on which common choice (and random glide) can paintings.

Biology of Aging

Biology of getting older offers the organic rules that experience resulted in a brand new figuring out of the factors of getting older and describes how those uncomplicated rules aid one to appreciate the human adventure of organic getting older, durability, and age-related illness. meant for undergraduate biology scholars, it describes how the speed of organic getting older is measured; explores the mechanisms underlying mobile getting older; discusses the genetic pathways that impact durability in a number of organisms; outlines the conventional age-related adjustments and the practical decline that happens in physiological platforms over the lifespan; and considers the consequences of modulating the speed of getting older and toughness.

The Social Origins of Language (Duke Institute for Brain Sciences Series)

How human language advanced from the necessity for social communicationThe origins of human language stay hotly debated. regardless of turning out to be appreciation of cognitive and neural continuity among people and different animals, an evolutionary account of human language—in its glossy form—remains as elusive as ever.
