Deferring Development: Setting Aside Cells for Future Use in Development and Evolution

1st Edition

Cory Douglas Bishop, Brian K. Hall
January 23, 2020

This volume examines cells set aside during development for use later in ontogeny or in adult life. There is no single term for such cells. The cells explored fall within several major categories — stem cells, set-aside cells (in echinoderm larvae), imaginal discs in insects such as Drosophila,...

Reproduction and Development in Platyhelminthes

1st Edition

T. J. Pandian
January 22, 2020

This book is a comprehensive elucidation on aspects of reproduction and development in platyhelminthes covering from acoelids to taeniids. With the unique presence of neoblasts, turbellarians serve as a model for studies on cancer and senescence. Of ~ 27,000 species, ~ 77% are parasites; they are...

Phylogenetics of Bees

1st Edition

Rustem Abuzarovich Ilyasov, Hyung Wook Kwon
December 20, 2019

Bees are flying insects of the order Hymenoptera closely related to wasps and ants. The ancestors of bees are assumed to be predatory wasps, which switched to pollen consumption. Further, bees co-evolved with flowering plants and divided into several species according to climatic conditions. Widely...

Neanderthals in the Classroom

1st Edition

Elizabeth Marie Watts
October 04, 2019

Neanderthals in the Classroom examines the ongoing battle surrounding evolution from a cultural and historical perspective and then puts Theodosius Dobzhansky’s claim that “nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution” to the ultimate test by exploring the potential evolutionary...

Biogeology: Evolution in a Changing Landscape

1st Edition

Bernard Michaux
July 15, 2019

This detailed exposition gives background and context to how modern biogeography has got to where it is now. For biogeographers and other researchers interested in biodiversity and the evolution of life on islands, Biogeology: Evolution in a Changing Landscape provides an overview of a large swathe...

In Vitro Methods in Developmental Toxicology: Use in Defining Mechanisms and Risk Parameters

1st Edition

Gary L. Kimmel, Devendra M. Kochhar
April 11, 2019

First Published in 1990, this text brings together the work of several investigators who used in vitro techniques to probe the nature of embryonic cell response to a diverse group of chemical agents. It focuses on the approaches, limitations, usefulness and applicability of defining mechanisms...

Human Life Before Birth, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Frank Dye
February 25, 2019

This textbook presents essential and accessible information about human embryology including practical information on human health issues and recent advances in human reproductive technology. Starting with biological basics of cell anatomy and fertilization, the author moves through the development...

Revival: Growth of the Gastrointestinal Tract (1990)

1st Edition

Jean A. Morisset, Travis E. Solomon
February 14, 2019

This book provides an up-to-date summary of the large body of data regarding gastrointestinal hormones and growth factors involved in the development and maintenance of the architecture and physiological functions of the different organs of the digestive tract. The regulation of growth and...

Reproduction and Development in Annelida

1st Edition

T. J. Pandian
February 04, 2019

This book is a concise informative elucidation of all aspects of reproduction and development in annelids covering from arenicola to tubifex. Annelids flourish between 4,900 m depth to 2,000 m altitude; some of them occur in unusual habitats like hydrothermal vents and subterranean aquatic system (...

Fish Defenses Vol. 2: Pathogens, Parasites and Predators

1st Edition

Giacomo Zaccone
January 16, 2019

Dramatic changes in the environment, including habitat degradation and climate change, have focused attention on how individuals and populations respond to a shifting biotic and abiotic landscape. A critical step toward meeting this goal is a clear understanding of the capacity of individuals to...

Reproductive Biology and Phylogeny of Fishes (Agnathans and Bony Fishes): Phylogeny, Reproductive System, Viviparity, Spermatozoa

1st Edition

Barrie G M Jamieson
November 21, 2018

It is perhaps because fishes live in a buoyant medium, whether it be fresh or sea water, that they show a diversity in body shapes that is unparalleled by other vertebrates. There is also a unique diversity in the modes of reproduction, whether by external or internal fertilization, and this, with...
