Keywords and Concepts in Evolutionary Developmental Biology by Brian K. Hall

Book Description

The new field of evolutionary developmental biology is one of the most exciting areas of contemporary biology. The fundamental principle of evolutionary developmental biology ("evo-devo") is that evolution acts through inherited changes in the development of the organism. "Evo-devo" is not merely a fusion of the fields of developmental and evolutionary biology, the grafting of a developmental perspective onto evolutionary biology, or the incorporation of an evolutionary perspective into developmental biology. Evo-devo strives for a unification of genomic, developmental, organismal, population, and natural selection approaches to evolutionary change. It draws from development, evolution, palaeontology, ecology, and molecular and systematic biology, but has its own set of questions, approaches, and methods.

Books By Author Brian K. Hall

Epigenetics by Brian K. Hall Epigenetics, Hardback (April 2011)

Illuminating the processes and patterns that link genotype to phenotype, this title seeks to explain features, characters, and developmental mechanisms that can only be understood in terms of interactions that arise above the level of the gene.

On the Nature of Limbs by Brian K. Hall On the Nature of Limbs, Paperback (January 2008)

Just as Darwin's ideas continue to propel the modern study of adaptation, so too Richard Owen's contributions fuel the interest in homology, organic form, and evolutionary developmental biology. This title offers his theory of the archetype and his views on species origins.
