Das Problem der Zellteilung physiologisch betrachtet


IN this monograph the professor of histology at| the University of Moscow puts together the results of a series of researches, carried out in his laboratory, which are so novel in outlook and method of experimental approach that some time must elapse before biologists in general can be prepared to express an opinion upon them. In introductory chapters the problem of cell division is approached in a somewhat artificial semi-philosophical manner, leading up to the general conclusion that the process of cell division is very largely determined as the result of influences received at the surface of the cell.
