Developmental Biology in Israel

Cover legend

The biblical Nubian Ibex (Capra nubiana), an Israeli icon popularly known as the “Yael” (desert dwelling goat), is found in the mountainous desert areas in Israel. The photograph was taken at Ein Avdat, in the Negev Desert by Professor Ben-Zion Shilo, Weizmann Institute.
