Much recent research in evolutionary developmental biology has focused on the origin of new body plans. However, most evolutionary change at the population and species level consists of tinkering: small-scale alterations in developmental pathways within a single body plan. Such microevolutionary events have been well studied on a population genetic level and from the perspective of adaptive phenotypic evolution, but their developmental mechanisms remain poorly studied.
This book explores both theoretical and practical issues of tinkering. It features a wide range of perspectives to address several fundamental questions. How does tinkering occur developmentally, and how is it manifested phenotypically? Are the developmental mechanisms by which tinkering occur different from those that underlie larger evolutionary changes? What are the developmental constraints on tinkering? And how do we test hypotheses about microevolutionary shifts in development from the fossil record?

Fondatore di Pikaia e appassionato bibliofilo, cacciatore di riferimenti bibliografici (evoluzionistici) ovunque si trovino. A tal proposito ho finalmente terminato la collana editoriale 150 ANNI DI STORIA DELL’EVOLUZIONE IN ITALIA. PERCORSI E ITINERARI BIBLIOGRAFICI, recensita qui su Pikaia man mano che pubblicavo i volumi. Sul mio blog https://darwininitalia.blogspot.com è disponibile la descrizione dell’intera opera.
