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 wide themes of migration and differentiation in common improvement. The booklet additionally considers what is going improper whilst improvement is misdirected via mutations, or through publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers similar to medicinal drugs, alcohol, or extra diet A, and comprises discussions of tumours and syndromes and delivery defects concerning neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the learn of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing in particular with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going immediately to the middle of the developmental beginning of edition, the uncooked fabric on which ordinary choice (and random float) can paintings.
