Many scientists and philosophers of science are troubled by the relative isolation of developmental from evolutionary biology. Reconciling the science of development with the science of heredity preoccupied a minority of biologists for much of the twentieth century, but these efforts were not corporately successful. Mainly in the past fifteen years, however, these previously dispersed integrating programmes have been themselves synthesized and so reinvigorated. Two of these more recent… Expand
How Developmental is Evolutionary Developmental Biology
TLDR
This article outlines core concerns of evo-devo, distinguish theoretical and practical variants, and counter Sterelny's recent argument that evo -devo's attention to development, while important, offers no significant challenge to evolutionary theory as the authors know it. Expand
Evo-Devo: evolutionary developmental mechanisms.
  • B. Hall
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The International journal of developmental biology
  • 2003
TLDR
Evo-Devo opens the black box between genotype and phenotype, or more properly, phenotypes as multiple life history stages arise in many organisms from a single genotype. Expand
Development and microbiology
On the basis of findings from developmental biology, some researchers have argued that evolutionary theory needs to be significantly updated. Advocates of such a “developmental update” have, amongExpand
Discussion: Three Ways to Misunderstand Developmental Systems Theory
Developmental systems theory (DST) is a general theoretical perspective on development, heredity and evolution. It is intended to facilitate the study of interactions between the many factors thatExpand
The Nurture of Nature: Biology, Psychology and Culture
In this thesis I explore what consequences taking development seriously in evolutionary considerations will have for how we understand the evolution of psychology and culture. I first explicate theExpand
Developmental dynamics: toward a biologically plausible evolutionary psychology.
TLDR
Recent advances in genetics, embryology, and developmental biology that have transformed contemporary developmental and evolutionary theory are reviewed and how these advances challenge gene-centered explanations of human behavior that ignore the complex, highly coordinated system of regulatory dynamics involved in development and evolution is explored. Expand
The Developmental Systems Perspective: Organism-environment systems as units of development and evolution
TLDR
It is suggested that DST is about development per se, and that it fails at offering a new view on evolution, and is not a unified theory of evolution and development. Expand
Towards a Truly Developmental Epigenetics
Conceptual and empirical advances across the biological and psychological sciences have made it increasingly clear that genetic and environmental factors cannot be meaningfully partitioned whenExpand
The Organism in Developmental Systems Theory
In this article, I address the question of what Developmental Systems Theory (DST) aims at explaining. I distinguish two lines of thought in DST, one that deals specifically with development andExpand
Palaeontology and Evolutionary Developmental Biology: A Science of the Nineteenth and Twenty–first Centuries
TLDR
In this review, it is examined how palaeontology has been linked to evolution and to embryology in the past, and how links with evo–devo have enlivened and will continue to en liven both palaeonteontology and evo-devo. Expand

Cycles of Contingency: Developmental Systems and Evolution
Many books on evolution neglect the complex dynamics of ontogeny (development) necessary to produce the mature creature. They either ignore it or reduce it to the transmission of genetic information.Expand
Developmental evolution as a mechanistic science: the inference from developmental mechanisms to evolutionary processes
TLDR
It is argued that this area has the potential to become the core of DE's disciplinary identity and is proposed a set of questions that may guide the search for valid inferences on the role of developmental mechanisms in the explanation of evolutionary innovations. Expand
The concept of developmental reprogramming and the quest for an inclusive theory of evolutionary mechanisms
  • W. Arthur
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution & development
  • 2000
TLDR
This paper explores how a combination of the neo‐Darwinian and “evo‐devo” approaches provides a more inclusive view of evolutionary mechanisms with greater explanatory power, with a particular focus on developmental reprogramming. Expand
General Introduction to the Symposium on Evolutionary Developmental Biology: Paradigms, Problems, and Prospects
TLDR
It is argued that old questions about the relationship of development to evolution, raised by such figures as William Bateson and Richard Goldschmidt, remain relevant to contemporary work, though they require major reformulation in light of subsequent developments. Expand
Developmental phenotypic plasticity: where ecology and evolution meet molecular biology.
TLDR
The successful multidisciplinary efforts to understand the phytochrome-mediated shade-avoidance and light-seeking responses of flowering plants are reviewed as a pertinent example of convergence between evolutionary and molecular biology. Expand
The Shape of Life: Genes, Development, and the Evolution of Animal Form
TLDR
In "The Shape of Life", Raff analyzes the rise of this experimental discipline and lays out research questions, hypotheses and approaches to guide its development. Expand
Neo-Darwinian developmental evolution: can we bridge the gap between pattern and process?
TLDR
This work considers the approach to examine the expression patterns of a candidate gene in divergent taxa and to use these results to infer which aspects of a particular genetic pathway are either conserved or altered. Expand
Guest Editorial: Evo‐devo or devo‐evo — does it matter?
  • B. Hall
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution & development
  • 2000
TLDR
The sobriquet “evo-devo” aptly captures the diversity of the aims of evolutionary developmental biology, which seeks to understand how life arose and diversified, and how the authors see the changes observed within a single generation relating to changes across generations. Expand
Embryology and evolution 1920-1960: worlds apart?
  • R. Amundson
  • Biology, Medicine
  • History and philosophy of the life sciences
  • 2000
TLDR
The methodological contrasts that obtained between embryology and both Mendelian-chromosomal genetics and neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory persist to the present day and are explored. Expand
Epigenetics: Regulation not replication
TLDR
It is argued that environmentally-induced changes tend to reduce, not enhance fitness, and the flexibility required in epigenetic systems is at least theoretically possible, so EIS in metazoans do not represent somatic, Lamarckian or acquired inheritance. Expand
