Development of Animal Form by Alessandro Minelli

Book Description

Contemporary research in the field of evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', has to date been predominantly devoted to interpreting basic features of animal architecture in molecular genetics terms. Considerably less time has been spent on the exploitation of the wealth of facts and concepts available from traditional disciplines, such as comparative morphology, even though these traditional approaches can continue to offer a fresh insight into evolutionary developmental questions. The Development of Animal Form aims to integrate traditional morphological and contemporary molecular genetic approaches and to deal with post-embryonic development as well. This approach leads to unconventional views on the basic features of animal organization, such as body axes, symmetry, segments, body regions, appendages and related concepts. This book will be of particular interest to graduate students and researchers in evolutionary and developmental biology, as well as to those in related areas of cell biology, genetics and zoology.

Books By Author Alessandro Minelli

Towards a Theory of Development by Alessandro Minelli Towards a Theory of Development, Hardback (May 2014)

This volume explores the foundations of ontogeny by asking how the development of living things should be understood. It explores key concepts of developmental biology, asks whether general principles of development can be discovered, and what the role of models and theories is in developmental biology.

Evolving Pathways by Alessandro Minelli Evolving Pathways, Paperback (July 2012)

This is an integrated overview of a diverse range of approaches to studying 'evo-devo', for researchers and graduate students.

Surviving by Alessandro Minelli Surviving, Hardback (December 2009)

A kaleidoscope of magnificent photographs details the astonishing diversity of evolutionary adaptation among animales and plants.

Forms of Becoming by Alessandro Minelli Forms of Becoming, Hardback (March 2009)

What comes first, form or function? Trumpeted as the future of biological science, evolutionary developmental biology (or 'evo-devo') answers this question by showing how evolution controls the development of organisms. This book looks at the history and key issues of evo-devo. It focuses on the ways animal organisms evolve through competition.
