This is the first comprehensive review and discussion of meiosis, the antithesis of fertilization. Meiosis is a special form of nuclear division "invented" by sexually reproducing eukaryotes to ensure that a correct chromosome complement is maintained over successive generations. In this masterly treatment, the author describes the scheduling, mechanisms, biochemistry and the genetic control of the events of meiosis in sexual systems as well as the variants adopted by subsexual forms. This will be an essential text for upper division students and research workers in genetics, cytology and cell biology.

"This book by John, an established expert in the study of meiosis, should be welcomed in the hope that it will serve as a cornerstone in defining problems awaiting genetic and molecular solutions." Science "Meiosis by Bernard John, from the series Developmental and Cell Biology, is an excellent source for educating oneself in the subject." Cell "On the whole this book is meticulous and approaches encyclopedic coverage. It is a must addition for workers in the field who will welcome its informativeness and rich source of references. It is a monumental work." Marjorie P. Maguire, American Journal of Human Biology "...this treatise by B. John is a significant review of meiotic systems, and cell biologists, geneticists, systematists, and evolutionists will find it a very useful reference." R.C. Jackson, Plant Genetics Newsletter
