Media reviews
This well-conceived and well-edited book offers much interest to both herpetologists and ichthyologists... It is an excellent reference for graduate sutdents and investigators in these fields and for herpetologists and vertebrate biologists in general. --Kentwood D. Wells, University of Connecticut, in COPEIA (2000) "...certain to become as important as Gavin De Beer's Embryos and Ancestors. This integrative and organismal approach forms the core of the emerging field of evolutionary developmental biology which is well served by this volume." --R. Glenn Northcutt in CELL (September 1999) "...this book is to be recommended as giving a valuable insight into current thinking on larvae." --D.I. Williamson in JOURNAL OF NATURAL HISTORY
