This is a text for a new field of Biology that relates the embryo to its environment. Intersectingnumerous disciplines in the Biological and Life Sciences, the authorshave providedcoveragein whichthe molecular biology of epigenetic development meets and interacts with the evolutionary aspects of phenotypic plasticity.
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

PART III: TOWARD A DEVELOPMENTAL EVOLUTIONARY SYNTHESIS
