The Spemann-Mangold Organizer

Cover legend

Portrait photos of Hans Spemann (1869-1941) and Hilde Mangold, née Pröscholdt (1898-1924) on a background illustrating a page of H. Mangold´s laboratory notebook. One can clearly appreciate her careful histological analysis of two sections from the famous Um 132 experiment. The induction of a second embryonic axis after heterotransplantation of the upper blastoporal lip in a triton embryo is clearly apparent.
