"Genetics, the most rapidly advancing of the life sciences, has stimulated more diverse disciplines in the natural and social sciences than any other field. The fact that it has encouraged scientists of varied backgrounds -- anthropologists, chemists, computer specialists, engineers, mathematicians, paleontologists, physicians, and physicists -- to contribute to its development is one reason for its prodigious growth. Such growth is accompanied by a proliferation in terminology, which creates a problem both to beginning students and scientists from other disciplines who read papers by geneticists. Various terms, especially in molecular and cell biology, are newly coined and thus not found in any collegiate or biology dictionaries; in some cases, the terms are unknown to students with little or no background in taxonomy." "This much-needed fifth edition of the Dictionary of Genetics has been organized to provide a quick understanding to students and non-geneticists. It includes over 6,500 definitions of terms and species names relevant to the study of genetics. Also featured are a chronology that spans 400 years of genetic study and an extensive bibliography. The entries are for both strictly genetic terms and also nongenetic terms that are often encountered in the literature. Thus the book is helpful not only to beginning geneticists, but to anyone involved in life sciences. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Fourteen years have passed since the publication of David Spencer Smith's Insect Cells: Their Structure and Function. Here the results of a decade of electronmicroscopic studies on insect cells were summarized in an organized and integrated fashion for the first time, and the ultrastructural characteristics of different specialized cells and tissues were abundantly illustrated in the 117 plates this monograph contained. In the intervening period great progress has been made in the field of Insect Ultrastructure. Organelles not even mentioned in Smith's book, such as synaptonemal complexes, clathrin baskets, fusomes, and retinular junc tions, have been identified and functions proposed for them. There have also been many technical advances that have profoundly influenced the direction of subsequent research. A spectacular example would be the development by Miller and Beatty of the chromosomal spreading technique which allowed for the first time ultrastructural studies on segments of chromosomes containing genes in various stages of replication and transcription. Then there is the freeze-fracture procedure first described by Moor and his colleagues. This technique permitted an analysis of intercellular junctions that was impossible with the conventional sectioning methods. The results greatly clarified our understanding of the channels for ion movement and the permeability barriers between cells and also the membrane changes that occur during the embryonic differentiation and metamorphosis of various types of insect cells
