This book is a survey of the history of developmental biology from 1880. It includes in-depth studies of key aspects by leading historians of biology, comparisons of the differing characteristics of biological research in the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany, and a chronological table outlining the main events in the subject. The current status of the science of embryology is analysed historically from the perspectives of biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, evolution theory and theoretical biology. Prominent contemporary theorists in the field of developmental biology document the origins of their models. A number of contributions raise issues relating to the sociology and philosophy of science. The book includes a survey of bibliographic and other research resources which will serve as an aid and a springboard for future work in the field.
