30. Juni 2010
During the past four years, the field of developmental biology has begun a new metamorphosis. The Ninth Edition of Developmental Biology mirrors this shift with a wholly revised text, over 600 new literature citations, and substantial reorganization of content. The introductory section has been streamlined from six chapters to three-one each on developmental anatomy, the mechanisms of gene regulation during differentiation, and cell-cell communication during morphogenesis. Another new feature is the addition of short part openers that address key concerns in developmental biology. These provide an introduction to the subsequent chapters, telling the reader what to expect and placing that information into a specific context. Each chapter ends with a guide to Web-based resources relevant to that chapter's content, and the Ninth Edition is the first to include a glossary of key terms. Some of the new material in this edition includes: mesenchymal and induced pluripotent stem cells; the transdifferentiation of pancreatic cells; new data on sea urchin micromere specification; the mechanisms whereby Sry and Wnt signaling determine mammalian sex; the memory of cell fate during amphibian limb regeneration; how bats got their wings and how dachshunds got their short legs. This completely updated text includes fundamental new material that alters what we teach in developmental biology courses. Included inside every new copy of the book is an online access code for Mary Tyler and Ron Kozlowski's remarkable resource, DevBio Laboratory: Vade Mecum3. (Online access may also be purchased separately.) The book also offers a Companion Website (www.devbio.com). Cross-referenced throughout the textbook, this resource provides more information for advanced students, historical, philosophical, and ethical perspectives on issues in developmental biology, videos, interviews, Web links, and updates. The website includes the full bibliography of literature cited in the book, most of which are linked to their PubMed citations. Also, for the Ninth Edition, Susan Singer's chapter on plant developmental biology has been moved to this location.

'Gilbert is an excellent storyteller. He presents the gesalt of developmental biology as a whole, with its questions, history and future perspectives all beautifully interwoven with other scientific disciplines. In an elegant flowing, lucid, but never too casual style, he speaks directly to his reader, challenges him by asking questions, and invites him to become a fellow developmental biologist. This work is perfect for someone who is interested in developmental biology and wants to dig deep.' Lab Times 'The ninth edition of Scott F. Gilbert's book confirms its earlier established reputation as the most complete and qualified developmental biology textbook. It not only explains and beautifully illustrates information in practically all aspects of this science-both descriptive and experimental-it also contains sections that other textbooks commonly do not. This concerns the detailed chapter on developmental genetics and especially-what may be the main novelty of this edition-Chapter 4, devoted to systemic biology in its medicinal, ecological, and evolutionary aspects.' - L. V. Belousov, Russian Journal of Developmental Biology

3.0 von 5 Sternen More of a giant review article than a teaching textbook. 8. September 2012
Von Umberto Muralitharan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Not the best, not the worst. The book does not address big concepts adequately and absolutely requires a classroom or Wikipedia to break those down, The reading is chock full of detailed mechanisms that don't really do much to explain the big developmental concept that the author is trying to teach. Instead, you end up caught up in the details and don't even realize what he's talking about.

Overall, this isn't so much a textbook inasmuch as it is a gigantic review article that lists what's going on in the field. Understanding what those lists mean in terms of the big picture is up to you and your professor.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Required Textbook for upper division biology class 3. Oktober 2011
Von PansyHunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this textbook for my upper division college Developmental Biology class. I've only read the first 5 chapters of this book. I must say: the organization is pretty good, and it is fairly easy to read. I bought the loosed-leaf version at my school bookstore for $88 with tax and then returned it because Amazon is much cheaper AND this is the hardcover version. The pictures inside the book are really good and very high quality in this book. There is a summary section after every chapter, and this is helpful to brush up on the things that you just read. My professor just uses the figures for her lecture (I'm pretty sure that the company who owns this textbook allows you to buy PowerPoint versions of this book to present to students). The PowerPoint version contains all of the figures in the textbook, and my professor mainly tests us on the figures because they practically detail the entire chapter.

Pros: My favorite thing about this book is the Signaling Pathway section because not only do they provide a schematic picture of it, the textbook also has a simplified version (which is the part you will probably remember later on in life).

Cons: the book tries to add some humor. I don't think it's funny, and it doesn't help me remember. Luckily, these "opinions" are like 1 sentence every few pages, so it's not much. Maybe the humor might be enjoyable to others, this might help you remember. It didn't help me because I am really bad a reading comprehension so not much is funny to me.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great overview of the subject 7. Februar 2012
Von SRDR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Loseblattsammlung|Verifizierter Kauf
Its been 2 weeks into the semester, and I only have good things to say about this text.
The outline that Gilbert purposes for the subject is straightforward and quite helpful. Maybe its the nature of the subject or how Gilbert approaches Developmental Biology, but I appreciate how he writes a good amount about the historical details of previous experiments and scientist. It allows you to go on, in a sense, relive the journey to scientific progression. I also appreciate how Gilbert understands the value of diagrams and photos.
I agree with other reviews in how the textbook is more for the undergraduate level as opposed to the graduate level. However, this text does give the foundations for graduate level reading.

i had been reading this book and is pretty good for collecting the developmental stages of different organisms. Im a researcher and for me this book is very good for those that are in the developmental biology field.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Could be clearer 6. Oktober 2012
Von Rogbonna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The book is okay. I like the introductions before each set of chapters. They really help set the scope of what is to come in the following chapters. However, when you're reading the syntax and writing become unclear at points. Also as many have written before at times the examples take away from the observation or idea presented. I mean, I absolutely appreciate the details provided, but they could be clearer.
