  • An accessible text, focusing on the most well-known genes, developmental processes and taxa.
  • Builds logically from developmental genetics and regulatory mechanisms to evolution at different genetic morphological levels.
  • Adds major insights from recent genome studies, new evo-devo biology research findings, and a new chapter on models of variation and divergence among closely related species.
  • Provides in-depth focus on key concepts through well-developed case studies.
  • Features clear, 4-color illustrations and photographs, chapter summaries, references and a glossary.
  • Presents the research of Dr. Carroll, a pioneer in the field and the past president of the Society for Developmental Biology.
