Description

In this Very Short Introduction, Terrence Allen and Graham Cowling offer an illuminating account of the nature of cells–their basic structure, forms, division, signaling, and programmed death. Allen and Cowling start with the simple prokaryotic cell–cells with no nucleus–and show how the
bodies of more complex plants and animals consist of billions of eukaryotic cells, of varying kinds, adapted to fill different roles–red blood cells, muscle cells, branched neurons. The authors also show that each cell is an astonishingly complex chemical factory, the activities of which we have
only begun to unravel in the past fifty years.
