This work brings together a collection of comprehensive reviews on epithelial biology, considering the form and function of various epithelial tissues providing cross-references to different systems. Coverage includes the nature and control of epithelial cell polarity, the function and differentiation in native tissues, both during development and in the adult, and the function and differentiation of epithelial branching structure.

This text will be a valuable reference for students and research workers - Biological Abstracts; ...very up-to-date. Myriads of references...Tom Fleming has done an excellent job. He seems to have chosen all the right people, briefed them thoroughly on what he wanted and, as a result, has produced a volume which, although diverse in authorship, is remarkably consistent...I don't think it will age as fast as some similar volumes because of the quality of reviews and because of their comprehensive nature. Well done, Tom and Chapman and Hall - British Society for Cell Biology Newsletter; Tom Fleming has assembled a group of 13 articles, many from highly respected groups, that probe diverse topics ranging from details of epithelial structure of the development of a variety of epithelial tissues. The result is a wide-ranging and unique perspective (giving a full picture of how epithelial tissues are formed and how they work)... - Trends in Cell Biology
