About this book

Epigenetic Inheritance and Evolution discusses the evidence for and against the heritability of acquired characters. Since it presents original and controversial arguments about the importance of epigenetic inheritance, Epigenetic Inheritance and Evolution provides a basis for discussion, modelling, and experimental investigation of the role of environmentally induced variation in evolution. Of interest to a broad range of biologists and other scientists. With a new Preface describing the impact of the hardback edition on subsequent research and a new Appendix of selected publications influenced by Epigenetic Inheritance and Evolution.

Media reviews

" [...] a challenging and useful book, both because it provokes a careful scrutiny of one's own basic ideas regarding evolutionary theory, and because it cuts across so many biological disciplines."
The Quarterly Review of Biology

"In my view, this work exemplifies Theoretical Biology at its best [...] here is rampant speculation that is consistently based on cautious reasoning from the available data. Even more refreshing is the absence of sloganeering, grandstanding, and "isms"."
Biology and Philosophy

"Epigenetics is fundamental to understanding both development and gene expression, and not surprisingly, evolutionary biologists have long been fascinated with its proper place in evolutionary theory [...] Enter Jablonka and Lamb, who provide a thoughtful review of the recent molecular literature and suggest a number of potential consequences."
