Published as they are under a title suggesting an emphasis on morphogenesis, these 17 papers (with discussions) from a Ciba Foundation Symposium held in November 1965 might more accurately be described as surveying the physiogenesis of respiration.
Justified by man's move from water to air as the most striking event in his early respiratory life, the opening speakers consider various aspects of nonhuman vertebrate physiology, including gas transfer in water-breathing dogs. Subsequent papers discuss embryology of the lung, postnatal gas-exchange capacity, the alveolar lining layer, intrauterine gas exchange, and the onset of breathing at birth.
