CELL AND TISSUE CULTURE. By John Paul. viii
261 pages, 41 figures.
$7.00. E. & S. Livingstone, Ltd., Edinburgh (Williams & Wilkins Co.,
Baltimore). 1959.
This book is based on the Tissue Culture
Association Summer Course, which was
given at the University of Colorado School
of Medicine in 1958 under the direction of
the author. The course was started some
ten years ago as an intensive four weeks
of instruction in the structure and function
of living cells, techniques of cell and tissue culture, and interpretation of results.
It is designed for post doctoral workers
who plan to use cultured tissues in their
research or teaching. The number of
participants in the course each summer is
restricted to fifteen because of laboratory
limitations and for this reason, a concise
account such as that contained in this
book will be gratefully received by all the
many envious non-participants.
The nineteen chapters are arranged into
four parts as follows: I. Principles of cell
structure; 11. Preparation of materials;
111. Special techniques, and IV. Special
applications of cell and tissue culture
methods. There is a useful list of references at the end of each chapter, covering
both historical classics and the most recent
contributions.

newer knowledge of nutrition, physiology

energy conditions in compensated and decompensated hearts, heart rate and nutrition, biochemic aspects of therapy, serum
ferments as indicators of cellular function,
and clinical significance of ferments in

has interesting electron micrographs,
drawings and diagrams. Lists of references follow the chapters.
THE POSTURE PROBLEM UP TO DATE. May Goodall Darrow. 94 pages, illustrated. $3.50. Vantage Press, New York. 1959.
This little book is written for the layman. It gives the author’s philosophy of
the importance of posture in the intellect-
ual and spiritual life of man as well as
specific instructions for exercising the
muscles to correct faulty postures.
PHYSIOLOGY OF INSECT DEVELOPMENT. Edited by Frank L. Campbell. xiv

1959.

This is the first report of one of the Developmental Biology Conference Series
held under the auspices of the National
Academy of Sciences, National Research
Council, in 1956. It contains the preface
to the series by its organizer, Paul Weiss,
which explains the “discursive nature” and
“lack of uniformity” of the series. The
chapters include embryology, larval development and tissue culture, metamorphosis
and diapause, histolysis and tumors, and
regeneration. The conference is reported
as if by a tape recording of all remarks by
all participants, without summaries and
subheadings. There is a one page“Se1ected

ENDOCRINE CONTROL IN CRUSTACEANS. By David B. Carlisle and Sir
120 pages, 18 figures. $3.75. Cambridge UniversFrancis Knowles. vii
ity Press, New York. 1959.
+
Crustacean endocrinology is a relatively
young specialty a little more than thirty
years in span. An introductory chapter
gives its history but without an exhaustive
review of the literature. The next two
chapters deal with the neurosecretory system of the head and thorax, and colour
change. These were the subjects of the
earliest work and still may be the most
important and extensively studied areas.
A third chapter entitled “The Pericardial
Organs and Heart Beat” deals with an interesting type of organ and its hormonal
activity. Two more chapters are on growth,
moulting, development and metabolism,
and sex. The last chapter gives a brief
prospectus of future study, centering about
electron microscopy and biochemistry. The
list of references numbers about three
hundred. The illustrations are of drawings, photographs, and electron micrographs.
