Editorial Reviews

Review

"A recurrent theme throughout the book is the need for communication across disciplines and Harrison draws analogy, wherever possible, with problems in physical chemistry, the area in which he started his scientific career....aimed at experimental biologists who wish to understand the basics of reaction-diffusion theory and for mathematicians who wish to communicate with biologists....the diverse range of phenomena discussed in basic terms make this book worthwhile reading." Philip K. Maini, Bulletin of Mathematical Biology

"...a discursive yet engaging manner. Those who would like a qualitative introduction to the subject should read the first third of the book; the second third is a good introduction to quantitative reasoning; the last third shows how accurately morphogenesis has been modeled." Edward Cox, Science

"...a very distinctive feel to it. It is the work of a teacher and scholar who does not mind revealing his (and others') prejudices, successes, and failures. Harrison writes in a discursive yet engaging manner." Edward Cox, Science

"...[a] brave book." R.J.P. Williams, Journal of the American Chemical Society

Book Description

Explores the theories of the development of shape and size in living organisms and offers an exposition of the kinetic theory of shape.
