  • AN ORGANIZER is something that organizes something else. The orAN ganizer concept, as generally accepted in developmental physiology, has been constructed primarily on the foundation of experimental analysis of amphibian development. Some authors apparently regard results of experiment on amphibian development as an adequate foundation for a general theory of development, and the amphibian organizer as, in a sense, a model for organizers in general. Such a viewpoint seems not only narrow but… CONTINUE READING
