About this book

For too long, efforts to synthesize evolution and development have failed to build a united view of the origins and evolution of biological diversity. In Evolution, Development, and the Predictable Genome, David Stern sets out to draw evolutionary biology and developmental biology together by cutting through the differences that divide the disciplines and by revealing their deeper similarities. He draws upon the insights of generations of evolutionary biologists and scores of developmental biologists to build a solid foundation for future investigation of the genetic and developmental causes of diversity.
