Edited by Jamie Davies
Branching morphogenesis, the creation of branched structures in the body, is a key feature of animal
and plant development. This book brings together, for the first time, expert researchers working on a variety
of branching systems to present a state-of-the-art view of the mechanisms that control branching morphogenesis.
Systems considered range from single cells, to blood vessel and drainage duct systems to entire body plans, and
approaches range from observation through experiment to detailed biophysical modelling. The result is an integrated
overview of branching.
Hardcover 246 p. 110 illus., 7 in colour. ISBN 9780387256153
Written for: Developmental biologists, physiologists, systems biologists and tissue engineers, researchers, graduate
students and undergraduate students in the fields of mycology, botany, branching morphogenesis and in the
development plants, fungi and mammalian blood systems and organs.
