Embryonic Development of the Light-Brown Apple Moth

Some of the most challenging problems in biology today are concerned with `differentiation' - the amazing changes by which a fertilised egg becomes transformed into a complete animal.

In this film, time-lapse cinemicrography enables us to see the dynamic changes in an embryo of the Light-Brown Apple Moth as it develops to larval stage before emerging from its egg.

The Light-Brown Apple Moth lays a very flat egg, so it is an excellent subject for time-lapse study.

Produced in 1969.
