Gastrulation in Xenopus:
Morphogenic Movements

Gastrulation in Xenopus is quite a complicated process. The movements of gastrulation are best studied by breaking them down into their component events. We shall start by returning to the Amphibian Embryology Tutorial. Study this page and the next one. Then, go to Sagittal View of Xenopus Gastrula and study this and all of the remaining pages on Xenopus gastrulation.
