An Outline of Hemopoiesis and Current Terminology
It is not within the scope of this monograph to deal with all aspects of hemopoiesis and the reader is referred to the book by Metcalf and Moore  for a more extensive discussion of the origin, development, and interrelationships between hemopoietic populations. However, to understand the implications of the results obtained with the in vitro cloning systems, it is necessary at this point to make a brief description of hemopoietic populations and introduce a number of terms to be used in the following chapters. In the interests of simplicity, the description to follow will not be annotated either by detailed evidence or source references.
