Spatial Pattern Formation with Reaction/Population Interaction Diffusion Mechanisms

Part of the Biomathematics book series (BIOMATHEMATICS, volume 19)


Embryology is that part of biology which is concerned with the formation and development of the embryo from fertilization until birth. Development of the embryo is a sequential process and follows a ground plan, which is usually laid down very early in gestation. In humans for example it is set up roughly by the 5th week. The book by Slack (1983) is a readable account of the early stages of development from egg to embryo.
