About this book

The author investigates the relationship between development at the cellular level and the individual, and develops a general theory of development through a simple hierarchical extension of the synthetic theory of evolution. `Leo Buss's ideas are almost totally new and exceedingly important. In my view this book will be a milestone in the study of evolution.' John Tyler Bonner, Princeton University.
