Dear colleagues:  

Awhile ago I wrote asking for your favorite papers/books which
define/discuss the terms specification, determination and commitment.

Here are the results:


Suggested by Carol Auer (UConn)

Christianson & Warnick (1983) Dev. Biol. 95:288-293
Tsvi Sachs (1991) Pattern formation in plant tissues. Cambridge U Press
Henshaw et al. (1982) IN: Differentiation in vitro. Cambridge U Press
Halperin (1969) Ann Rev Plant Physiol 20:395-418


Suggested by Kallie Keith (U Toronto)

Lyndon & Francis (1992) Plant Mol. Biol. 19:51-68


Suggested By Chris Town (CWRU)

McDaniel et al (1992) Dev Biol 153:59-69


My own additional suggestions

Weiss, P (1939) Principles of Development. Henry Holt & Co
Spemann, H (1938) Embryonic Induction & Development. Yale U Press
Huala & Sussex (1993) Plant Cell 5:1157-1165
Williams & Carroll (1993) Bioessays 15:567-577
Steeves et al (1993) Ann. Bot. 71:511-517
Grainger, RM (1992) TIG 349-355

Slack, (1983) From Egg to Embryo: Regional Specification..... Cambridge
   U Press


This is by no means an exhaustive list and the usage of terms within the
literature is not consistent or standardized.
