Offers the first sustained exploration of modules, or independently operating components, from developmental and evolutionary perspectives. Contributors discuss what modularity is, how it can be identified and modeled, how it originated and evolved, and why it matters. Among many exciting findings, the contributors demonstrate how modules can highlight key constraints on evolutionary processes.
A very succesful attempt to view the merging fields of development and evolution from the viewpoint of their most important joint concept: modules. . . . A very important sourcebook, not only for a deeper understanding of how development evolves, but also for ideas for new work in this central biological area.--Jack Cohen "Biologist "
