Cover legend

The axolotl urodele can regenerate its limbs after amputation, as is illustrated here in histological images. During the regeneration process a blastema grows; this is composed of many undifferentiated cells. Some but not all blastema cells exhibit multipotency; these are considered to be similar to limb bud cells in that limb developmental processes are recapitulated in the blastema in order to recreate the sectioned limb. For further details, see Satoh et al. pp. 605-612 (https://doi.org/10.1387/ijdb.180118as) in the current issue.
