Regeneration and Morphogenesis

  • Rosine Chandebois
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 172)


The problem raised by traumatic regeneration in multicellular animals cannot be tackled without a sound conception of embryonic development. Actually the adult organism is the issue of ontogenesis during which cells have acquired their respective properties and structural features have emerged. We have to know the intimate mechanisms of these phenomena if we intend to understand how the specific structural patterns of an eliminated part of the adult body are reproduced during its regeneration.
