Summary
"Animals diverge from common ancestry through changes in their DNA, but what are the genes that control morphology? In this work, the author team led by Dr. Sean Carroll presents the general principles of the genetic basis of morphological change through a synthesis of evolutionary biology with genetics and embryology." "In this extensively revised second edition, the authors delve into the latest discoveries, incorporating new coverage of comparative genomics, molecular evolution of regulatory proteins and elements, and microevolution of animal development. This new edition also includes major insights from recent genome studies, incorporates new findings from evo-devo biology research, and adds a new chapter focusing on models of variation and divergence among closely related species."--Jacket
