About this book

&i;`A holistic view of the organism in which evolution is driven by `inner principles'. If, by this you mean laws of form, this is not as outrageous as it sounds. Evolutionary biologists have long been divided over the importance of physical constraints and contingencies on the course of evolution. Here, Kranich provides vivid descriptions of how organisms are much more than the sum of their parts.'&o; Martin Brookes, New Scientist
