From the Publisher"There is no shortage of textbooks devoted to developmental biology, but it is remarkably rare to find any substantial treatment of physical considerations. In producing an excellent guide to the physics of developing embryos, Forgacs and Newman have therefore done the developmental biology community a great service."
Nick Monk, University of Sheffield
"Fittingly, Cambridge University Press, which published D'Arcy Thompson's book in 1917, has brought out a worthy successor to it in 2005. Indeed, one way to describe Biological Physics of the Developing Embryo is to say that it is an extension of D'Arcy Thompson's great work...Students with a background in physics, chemistry or mathematics, and an interest in biological problems, will benefit greatly from this book, which can serve as an excellent text for a course in developmental biology. Forgacs and Newman have assimilated much from a vast and diverse literature."
