Developmental biology is a newly-developing subject that is attracting much interest because of exciting findings being made using a combination of classical embryo manipulation with more modern techniques. This book brings together for the first time, and in comprehensive, easy-to-follow protocols, practical instructions for all of the main techniques, from traditional embryology to cellular and molecular methods. It includes complete reprints of all the stage tables in common use for the main laboratory species. It will become an essential addition to laboratory benches of those using any technique as applied to embryos, cells, or tissues. It will also help teachers to design practical classes suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Developmental biology is entering an exciting new age. More and more, developmental biologists choose interdisciplinary and interorganismal approaches to study the particular problems they are interested in,. This book is directed towards this kind of new-age developmental biologist. The scope of the book is truly broad. Techniques for growing embryos from flies, worms, zebrafish, Xenopus, rats and an array of marine invertebrates are covered. The articles are all written by experts in the field ... Each of the individual contributions is extremely clear and to the point. One of the most useful features of the book is the appendix ... This book nicely fills that gap between theory and practice. The revolutionary thing about this book is the inclusion of discussion of flies and worms ... a true give-and-take of information between all animals is on the horizon.' Kathryn V. Anderson, University of California, Berkeley, Trends in Cell Biology Vol. 4, March 1994
'The volume will be an essential laboratory manual for all developmental biologists.' Aslib Book Guide, Vol. 59, No. 3, March 1994
'a very useful reference for either a newcomer to developmental biology research or an experienced developmental biologist who would like to look at the use of a different developmental or experimental system' Michael Fietz, Department of Zooology, Oxford, BSDB Newsletter 29
'This book will be very useful as a guide to organize university practicals or a full practical course ... just reading the book gives a good glimpse of how is the real thing ... books like this one are very welcome.' Juan Pablo Couso, University of Cambridge, BioEssays, Vol. 16, No. 2 - February 1993
'this book will be widely welcomed ... the ability to tackle a developmental problem in a variety of different species is increasingly valuable; having the relevant methods to hand will make this type of approach easier and more productive ... highly recommended and sensibly priced for the biologist on a shoestring.' Justin Grindley, TIG, September 1994, Vol. 10. No. 9
