The chapter 13 -special senses- eye development, I have found excellent information in an ordered sequence and was interesting to read. The explanations have included recent research works, clearly to improve the scientific knowledge. My search regarding eye developmental biology was fulfilled. It was pleasure to read this book.
please check the figure 13.4-? typing mistake endoderm- instead of ectodermal and mesenchymal interaction.
