Crow’s book is not the only textbook on quantitative genetics. I might have started with Douglas Falconer’s classic Introduction to Quantitative Genetics () (no mention of population genetics there!). I came across Falconer’s book (in the excellent edition that has Trudy Mackay as a co-author) later. However, by then I was long Author: Jonathan Flint. Read this book on Questia.

In this book the authors draw on what is known, largely from recent research, about the nature of genes and cells, the genetics of development and animal and plant body plans, intra- and interorganismal communication, sensation and perception, to propose that a few basic generalizations, along with the modified application of the classical evolutionary theory, can provide a broader.

Genetics and molecular biology have revealed a new realm of complexity in life, with major implications for how we understand evolution.

Genetics and the Logic of Evolution provides a much-needed overview and analysis of general principles and patterns of evolution in light of contemporary by: This book aims to meld our knowledge of genes and of their biochemical and cell-biological functions with phenotypes and examines their interplay with evolution.

The authors consider the impact of the recent explosion of information, which is a result of the identification of genes and pathways, on our understanding of the role of : Antony Shrimpton. Get this from a library.

About this book By focusing on the cellular mechanisms that underlie ontogeny, phylogeny and regeneration of complex physiologic traits, Evolution, the Logic of Biology demonstrates the use of homeostasis, the fundamental principle of physiology and medicine, as the unifying mechanism for evolution as all of biology.

(American Journal of Human Genetics, September ) "This book is highly suited to students and scientists in a range of fields who want to understand how evolution works through genetics.” (E-STREAMS, August ) "This book represents a valiant effort in expanding evolutionary thinking in many biological specialties."Price: $ Evolution, the Logic of Biology will be an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers studying evolutionary development, medicine and biology, anthropology, comparative and developmental biology, genetics and genomics, and physiology.
