New to this Edition:

  • An increased emphasis on stem cells, which are covered extensively and early in the book.
  • Sex determination and gametogenesis, instead of being near the end of the volume, are up front, prior to fertilization.
  • Greatly expanded coverage of neural development, comprising a unit unto itself.
  • Coverage of new experiments on morphogenesis and differentiation, as well as new techniques such as CRISPR.

  
A classic gets a new coauthor and a new approach: Developmental Biology, Eleventh Edition, keeps the excellent writing, accuracy, and enthusiasm of the Gilbert Developmental Biology book, streamlines it, adds innovative electronic supplements, and creates a new textbook for those teaching Developmental Biology to a new generation.
  
Several new modes of teaching are employed in the new Gilbert and Barresi textbook. The videos explaining development—as well as those from Mary Tyler's Vade Mecum—are referenced throughout the book, and several other valuable new elements have been added.

著者について: 

Scott F. Gilbert and Michael J. F. Barresi
 
 
Scott F. Gilbert 
is Howard A. Schneiderman Professor Emeritus at Swarthmore College and a Finland Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of Helsinki Institute of Biotechnology. He teaches developmental biology, developmental genetics, and the history of biology. After receiving his B.A. from Wesleyan University, he pursued his graduate and postdoctoral research at The Johns Hopkins University and the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Gilbert is the recipient of several awards, including the first Viktor Hamburger Award for excellence in developmental biology education, the Alexander Kowalevsky Prize for evolutionary developmental biology, honorary degrees from the Universities of Helsinki and Tartu, and the Medal of François I from the Collège de France.
 
Michael J. F. Barresi is an Associate Professor at Smith College in the department of Biological Sciences and Program in Neuroscience. Dr. Barresi was a Biology major and Studio Art minor at Merrimack College. After he received his B.A., Dr. Barresi pursued his doctoral research on muscle fiber type development at Wesleyan University in the laboratory of Dr. Stephen Devoto. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in Dr. Rolf Karlstrom's laboratory at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, investigating the development of commissure formation in the zebrafish forebrain. At Smith College, Dr. Barresi's laboratory investigates the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing the development of neural stem cells, commissure formation, and neurodevelopmental responses to environmental teratogens. He has been a member of the Professional Development and Education Committee of the Society for Developmental Biology.
