AUTHOR: Gerard, Karsenty
PUBLISHER: John Wiley & Sons, Incorporated

The first of two volumes, the volume comprises three sections: (1) insights into skeletal development, including, among others, novel ideas about the role of the perichondrium in skeletogenesis, current studies on joint formation, and the human consequences of dysregulated morphogenic signaling; (2) a traditional series of papers, both reviews and original research articles on bone cells-osteoblasts, osteoclasts, and osteocytes-in relation to mechanisms underlying their formation, fate, and function; and (3) new information on the role of hormones, both steroids and peptides, as well as cytokines and the central nervous system in regulating skeletal remodeling.
