Media reviews
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
