Presents a comprehensive and detailed account of all aspects of homology, the common evolutionary ancestry of structures in distinct species. Examines issues which have broad implications for research into molecular and developmental biology.
Homology is the central concept for all biology. This fine book brings together a selection of outstanding comparative biologists, all of whom have struggled to formulate a philosophical foundation for homology that has sufficient generality that it can serve all of biology. --David B. Blake in SCIENCE, 1995 "...a fine edited collection of papers about the concept of homology..." --Kenneth M. Weiss in EVOLUTIONARY ANTHROPOLOGY, 1995
