Written for a new field currently lacking a proper textbook, it relates the embryo to its environment, and demonstrates how development in nature is different from development in the laboratory. This book introduces a new field of Biology that is currently lacking a textbook. The coverage provided intersects numerous disciplines. The book provides new and important perspectives on Ecology, Conservation Biology, Cancer Biology, Ageing Research, Medicine, and Evolution; and allows students to approach the study of nature in a new way.This is a text for a new field of Biology that relates the embryo to its environment. Intersecting numerous disciplines in the Biological and Life Sciences, the authors have provided coverage in which the molecular biology of epigenetic development meets and interacts with the evolutionary aspects of phenotypic plasticity.

'Overall, a masterful synthesis! It's one of those things that makes one say, "Damn, I wish I had written that!"' - Fred Nijhout, Duke University, USA 'A unique, thought-provoking, and clearly written treatment, at the molecular level, of the environment's influence on embryonic development and the paths of evolutionary change.' - John Gerhart, University of California, Berkeley, USA 'This is an incredible piece of work, and something that is sorely needed, right now.' - Mary Tyler, University of Maine, USA 'This is an extraordinary work ! first-class conceptually and pedagogically.' - John Beatty, University of British Columbia, Canada '...contains a wealth of facinating information about the biological world, described in a crystal-clear and engaging writing style and with informative, aestheic figures...clear and comprehensive..a didactic masterpiece...You can feel on every page that this work was written with care...Read it and be inspired! Highly conceptual, thought-provoking and beautiful - this is biology at its best.' - Lab Times
