Founding Editorial: Embryology — An Integrated Approach

Copyright © 2001 Michael Richardson et al.

Abstract

We introduce the Embryology domain of TheScientificWorld and outline the scope and aims. We argue for an interdisciplinary approach to problems in develop-mental biology. Three areas are identified as being of particular relevance to this domain: evolutionary developmental biology, teratology, and descriptive or experimental embryology.
