Keywords and concepts in evolutionary developmental biology by Brian K Hall( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new field of evolutionary developmental biology is one of the most exciting areas of contemporary biology. The fundamental principle of evolutionary developmental biology ("evo-devo") is that evolution acts through inherited changes in the development of the organism. This is the first comprehensive reference work for this expanding field. Covering more than fifty central terms and concepts in entries written by leading experts, the book offers an overview of all that is embraced by this new subdiscipline of biology, providing the core insights and ideas that show how embryonic development relates to life-history evolution, adaptation, and responses to and integration with environmental factors.

Evolutionary developmental biology by Brian K Hall( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relationship between embryonic development and evolution
Homology : the hierarchical basis of comparative biology by Brian K Hall( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homology, the similarity between organisms that is due to common ancestry, is the central concept of all comparative biology. However, the application of this concept varies depending on the data being examined. This volume represents a state-of-the-art treatment of the different applications of this unifying concept. Chapters deal with homology on all levels, from molecules to behavior, and are authored by leading contributors to systematics, natural history, and evolutionary, developmental, and comparative biology. Special features include:* Commemoration of the 150th anniverary o
Cell commitment and differentiation by Norman Maclean( Book )

The origin and evolution of larval forms( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A classic problem in evolutionary biology is the origin of larvae - how and why did they occur? Indeed, it has often been suggested that many entirely unique body plans first originated as retained larvae of ancestral organisms. But what of the larvae themselves? What developmental and evolutionary forces shape and constrain them? These questions and others are dealt with by this international team of leading zoologists and developmental biologists. Intended to contribute to a continuing dialectic, this book presents diverse opinions as well as manifold conclusions. Certain to challenge and intrigue, The Origin and Evolution of Larval Forms should be a part of the library of every evolutionary and developmental biologist interested in larvae and their significance."--Jacket
Variation by Benedikt Hallgrímsson( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection was based on the observation that there is variation between individuals within the same species. This fundamental observation is a central concept in evolutionary biology. However, variation is only rarely treated directly. This volume positions the role of variability within this broad framework, bringing variation back to the center of the evolutionary stage. This book is intended for scholars, advanced undergraduate students and graduates in evolutionary biology, biological anthropology, paleontology, morphology, developmental biology, genomics and other related disciplines."--Jacket
Bones and cartilage : developmental and evolutionary skeletal biology by Brian K Hall( Book )

36 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the function, development and evolution of bone and cartilage as tissues, organs and skeletal systems. It describes how bone and cartilage is developed in embryos and are maintained in adults, how bone reappears when we break a leg, or even regenerates when a newt grows a new limb, or a lizard a tail. Covers all the vertebrates as well as invertebrate cartilages
Fins into limbs : evolution, development, and transformation by Brian K Hall( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Skull( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental and cellular skeletal biology by Brian K Hall( Book )

11 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental and Cellular Skeletal Biology reviews the development, growth, and cell biology of the skeleton. The monograph provides a comprehensive overview of the aspects of skeletal biology, focusing mainly on the cellular level. It covers topics on the types of skeletal tissues, its evolution, and origin; location of the skeleton within the embryo; initiation of centers of skeletogenesis; and the initiation of skeletal growth. The book will be of great use to physiologists, cell biologists, hematologists, pathologists, orthopedic surgeons, and others whose professions are concerned with t
Environment, development, and evolution : toward a synthesis( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evolutionary developmental biology, also known as evo-devo or EDB, seeks to find links between development and evolution by opening the "black box" of development's role in evolution and in the evolution of developmental mechanisms. In particular, this volume emphasizes the roles of the environment and of hormonal signaling in evo-devo. It brings together a group of leading researchers to analyze the dynamic interaction of environmental factors with developmental and physiological processes and to examine how environmental signals are translated into pheno-typic change, from the molecular and cellular level to organisms and groups of organisms."--Jacket
Epigenetics : linking genotype and phenotype in development and evolution by Benedikt Hallgrímsson( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illuminating the processes and patterns that link genotype to phenotype, epigenetics seeks to explain features, characters, and developmental mechanisms that can only be understood in terms of interactions that arise above the level of the gene. With chapters written by leading authorities, this volume offers a broad integrative survey of epigenetics. Approaching this complex subject from a variety of perspectives, it presents a broad, historically grounded view that demonstrates the utility of this approach for understanding complex biological systems in development, disease, and evolution.

The neural crest in development and evolution by Brian K Hall( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the neural crest and neural crest cells, dealing with their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their cellular derivatives - in both agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the broad topics of migration and differentiation in normal development. Knowledge of the development and evolution of the neural crest sheds light on many of the oldest unanswered questions in developmental biology, such as: What is the role of the germ layers in early embryogenesis? How does the nervous systems develop? How does the vertebrate head arise developmentally and how did it arise evolutionary? How do growth factors and Hox genes direct cell differentiation and embryonic patterning? Cells from the neural crest are also associated with many developmental abnormalities. The book includes discussions of what goes wrong when development is misdirected by mutations, or by exposure of embryos to exogenous agents such as drugs, alcohol, or excess vitamin A. The book also includes discussions of tumors (neurocristopathies) and syndromes and birth defects involving neural crest cells
