About this book

Language: French

Many organisms are made up of identical or modified replicated parts (e.g., the segments of an earthworm, the vertebrae, etc.) This kind of organization has raised many questions from biologists since the late 18th century: what is its anatomical meaning, how is it set up during embryogenesis, what can be deduced from it about species evolution, etc.? The present book relates the history of these questions, and of the theories and concepts they have aroused for two centuries. It shows that the problem of replication of parts continually had, and still has, a central position at the meeting point of several biological disciplines.
