This new volume of Current Topics in Developmental Biology covers recent progresses in our understanding of animal metamorphosis. Over a dozen of leading experts reviews studies ranging from morphological, molecular to genetic analyses of metamorphosis in a broad spectrum of animals, including insects, fish. Topics include molecular evolution in metamorphosis, the synthesis and function of hormones in regulating metamorphic timing and rate, regulation and function of nuclear hormone receptors, neuroendocrine control of metamorphosis, tissue specific metamorphic events such as autophagy and stem cell development, and applications of genome-wide analysis technologies for studying metamorphosis.

Review quote

"Articles are concisely written and contain clear diagrams...each article has an abstract and is completed by an extensive bibliography, which also is a rich source of information for those interested in this promising complex of themes that are also of relevance for biomedical research."--Entomologie heute,Nov 01 2014
