About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1952 as part of the Cambridge Biological Studies series, this book presents contemporary theories on embryology using the example of the bird embryo. Waddington reviews the modern experimental embryology of birds, and touches on topics such as plumage development and the developmental actions of mutant genes. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in embryology or the history of epigenetics.
