The Hierarchical Basis of Comparative Biology
- Brian Hall, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
The application of homology 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. This paperback reprint of the original hardbound edition continues to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Sir Richard Owen's seminal paper distinguishing homology from analogy.
Graduate students and faculty in any field of comparative biology, including molecular systematics, comparative anatomy/ethology, and evolutionary and developmental biology.
