Principles of Developmental Biology
Fred Wilt and Sarah Hake’s Principles of Developmental Biology is a modern new text for the undergraduate course in developmental biology, informed by the molecular and cell biology revolutions that have changed the field over the last fifteen years. Designed for the one-semester undergraduate course, Principles of Developmental Biology stresses fundamental concepts, a select number of instructive experiments and cases, and contemporary research in its historical context.

This is a great textbook for developmental biology students, or for people looking for general information on the subject! The text contains background "boxes" with information on genetics and biochemistry so you dont really need background knowledge in those subjects to understand the content of the book. It is short, so it doesn’t go into too much detail but there’s enough information to understand the concepts! This text is not like most texts where they are so boring and hard to read that you just give up. It’s fairly easy reading and keeps things interesting enough to read the assigned pages.
