Summary Metamorphosis addresses various facets of postembryonic development, particularly signal transduction, morphogenesis, cell-cell interactions, and programmed cell death. A key feature of the book is its exploration of the molecular mechanisms underlying these processes. Key Features * Hormonal regulation of development * The mechanisms of hormone action * The steroid/thyroid hormone receptor family * Morphogenesis and programmed cell death
