“The ninth edition of Scott F. Gilbert's book confirms its earlier established reputation as the most complete and qualified developmental biology textbook. It not only explains and beautifully illustrates information in practically all aspects of this science—both descriptive and experimental—it also contains sections that other textbooks commonly do not. This concerns the detailed chapter on developmental genetics and especially—what may be the main novelty of this edition—Chapter 4, devoted to systemic biology in its medicinal, ecological, and evolutionary aspects.”
—L. V. Belousov, Russian Journal of Developmental Biology
