What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Dr. Dye has provided a reference book for students and scientists interested in development that provides easy access in one location to the answers to a lot of detailed and difficult questions [...] The book is concise, thorough [...] and useful. It is a nice piece of work that appropriately fills an empty niche in the scientific literature." (James L. Culberson, Ph.D., School of Medicine, Department of Anatomy, West Virginia University)

"[Frank Dye] has done a superb job collecting and defining the myriad terms used in developmental biology and has done so with precision, clarity, and completeness...the detailed nature of the definitions show great mastery of the field...the inclusion of short biographies of historical figures is outstanding and gives great depth to the book." (Mary Tyler, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Maine)
