Principles of Development

Fourth Edition

Lewis Wolpert and Cheryll Tickle

Offering the ideal depth and coverage for an undergraduate course, Principles of Development, Fourth Edition, focuses on common principles rather than overwhelming students with an encyclopedic level of detail. The fourth edition features more examples from human development and medicine; a fully revised and updated chapter on evolutionary developmental biology; expanded coverage of experimental evidence and tools; new end-of-chapter questions in both essay and multiple-choice formats; and an enhanced Companion Website.

New to this Edition:

  • Expanded content, including more examples from human development and medicine, which better reflect both course content and students' interests
  • A fully revised and updated chapter on evolutionary developmental biology
  • Expanded coverage of experimental evidence and tools
  • Additional high-quality photographs and illustrations, which reinforce the key principles presented in the text and provide an alternative route for learning
  • New end-of-chapter questions--in both essay and multiple-choice formats--to help students assimilate the material presented in the chapters
  • SUPPLEMENT: An enhanced Companion Website that offers students a hyperlinked bibliography, a flashcard glossary, multiple-choice questions, and a "Journal Club" with suggested research papers and discussion questions linked to topics featured in the book. Downloadable figures from the text are available to instructors.
