Summary The Drosophila embryo is one of the best understood developmental systems. Since the publication of the first edition over ten years ago, a lot of new information has accumulated. This has been taken into account in the extensively revised second edition of this standard reference book. This second edition is comprehensive, and describes and illustrates the embryonic development of Drosophila melanogaster. The anatomy of organogenesis is demonstrated in photographs and color diagrams of superb quality, showing sections of the various developmental stages
