This title, the 52nd in symposium series, presents a comprehensive review of apoptosis and features contributions from many internationally recognised authors. The book is the first to integrate programmed cell death in plants, invertebrates and vertebrates. Rapid publication ensures that the very latest research is included.

'This will be an excellent reference source for the expert.' - Aslib Book Guide

'The book provides an excellent overview of the burgeoning field of apoptosis. It is a superb reference for basic scientists or anyone interested in this fast growing research area that shows no sign of apoptotic shrinkage in the near future.' - The Quarterly Review of Biology
