About this book

Introduces a behavioural theory of evolutionary change that is not dependent on genetic mutation or genetic recombination in its initial stages. He proposes that developmentally wrought changes in behaviour can lead to the evolution of somatic novelties prior to genetic change. Some of these documented behavioural changes include heightened exploratory tendencies, increased resistance to stress, and enhanced problem-solving skills.
