Cells, Embryos, And Evolution: Toward A Cellular And Developmental Understanding Of Phenotypic Variation And Evolutionary Adaptability - John Gerhart
In "Cells, Embryos and Evolution" the authors' ambition is to continue what Charles Darwin began: to understand not only the influence of selection on evolution but also the capacity of an organism to generate heritable variation upon which selection can act. Drawing on the theories derived from molecular, cellular and developmental biology in the past 20 years, John Gerhart and Marc Kirschner have begun to explain the origins of phenotypic variation and evolutionary adaptation from within
