About this book

Many changes that occur during the embryonic development of an individual animal can be seen as a parallel to changes that have occurred in species or groups of species during evolutionary time. This book covers the interaction between developmental and evolutionary changes in animals.

This is a great book, and not nearly enough Biologists will read it...The writing is clear, with many well-referenced examples; it is not for school libraries, but should be read by all of us who want to know where `Embryos and Ancestors' is now - Journal of Biological Education; ...the authors have been capable of a true expansion of theory in several fields of ethology. A separate summary with every chapter considerably enhances the easy use of this fine book - Crustaceana; ...this book provides a valuable developmental perspective to the concepts of homology, adaptation, and form-function relationships. - Journal of Mammalian Evolution
