The symposium brings together a diverse group of investigators who are engaged in the analysis of mechanisms involved in spatial organization.The contributions made by researchers at the symposium are organized into three parts. Part I on the cytoplasmic localization of determinants includes studies on fine structure of cytoplasmic specializations of the polar lobe of molluscan embryos- the fine structure of the polar granules of Drosophila eggs- and the polarity of rhizoid formation in Fucus. Part II deals with maternal-effect mutants of developmental processes. It includes studies on temperature sensitive maternal effect mutants in the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans- the nature of the control of gene action during development- and deviations from normal development observed in mutant embryos of Drosophila melanogaster. Part III examines pattern formation in developing systems. It includes studies on intracellular patterning in Tetrahymena- developmental properties of nerve-free hydra- and intercellular interactions and pattern formation in filamentous cyanobacteria.
