The Cell in Development and Inheritance

Nature volume 63, pages 437438 (07 March 1901) | Download Citation



DURING the few years which have elapsed since the appearance of the first edition of Prof. Wilson's book on the cell, the rapid accumulation of new facts has resulted in the modification, in many important respects, of the views which were entertained concerning many cell phenomena even so lately as five years ago. Hence, though the volume before us is issued as a second edition, it has not only been considerably enlarged, but also much of the original matter has been displaced to make room for new treatment which shall more faithfully reflect the attitude of cytologists towards the problems which confront them at the present time. And we may fairly say that the author's efforts have not only been largely successful, but they have resulted in the production of one of the best works which it has been our good fortune to meet with for a long time.
