Developmental Biology provides an introduction to the principles involved in the development of a single cell into a complex organism, which consists of many specialized tissues and organs. We emphasize experimental evidence from molecular, genetic, and cell biological studies, which has led to our current understanding of development. We also consider the developmental origin, properties, and potential of embryonic and adult stem cells and their applications. Reflecting the unity of life, we take a comparative approach, and discuss experiments in various vertebrate and invertebrate animal model systems and plant model systems that have elucidated fundamental developmental processes.
