Cover legend

Immunostaining of the nerve pattern of a feathered area in a naked neck chick mutant embryo showing nerve arcades at the base of each fe ather. On the contrary, in the same embryo, the mutant featherless areas do not present arcades . For details see "Regulation of the chick cutaneous innervation pattern in retinoic acid-induc ed ectopic feathers and in the naked neck mutant" by L. Pays et al. in this issue.
