Evolving Pathways by Alessandro Minelli
Book DescriptionEvolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the study of the relationship between evolution and development. Dealing specifically with the generative mechanisms of organismal form, evo-devo goes straight to the core of the developmental origin of variation, the raw material on which natural selection (and random drift) can work. Evolving Pathways brings together contributions that represent a diversity of approaches. Topics range from developmental genetics to comparative morphology of animals and plants alike, and also include botany and palaeontology, two disciplines for which the potential to be examined from an evo-devo perspective has largely been ignored until now. Researchers and graduate students will find this book a valuable overview of current research as we begin to fill a major gap in our perception of evolutionary change.

Towards a Theory of Development, Paperback (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, Paperback (July 2012)
This is an integrated overview of a diverse range of approaches to studying 'evo-devo', for researchers and graduate students.
Surviving, Hardback (December 2009)
A kaleidoscope of magnificent photographs details the astonishing diversity of evolutionary adaptation among animales and plants.
Forms of Becoming, Hardback (March 2009)» View all books by Alessandro Minelli
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.

Author Biography - Alessandro Minelli
Alessandro Minelli is currently Professor of Zoology at the University of Padova, Italy. An honorary fellow of the Royal Entomological Society, he was a founding member and vice-president of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology. He has served as president of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, and is on the editorial board of multiple learned journals, including Evolution & Development. He is the author of 'The Development of Animal Form' (2003). Giuseppe Fusco is Assistant Professor of Zoology at the University of Padova, Italy. His main research work is in the morphological evolution and post-embryonic development of arthropods, with particular reference to the role of segmentation in the Chilopoda. The results of his work have been presented at many international congresses, including the European Society for Evolutionary Biology and the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology.
