Evolutionary developmental biology (evo‐devo) has undergone dramatic transformations since its emergence as a distinct discipline. This paper aims to highlight the scope, power, and future promise of evo‐devo to transform and unify diverse aspects of biology. We articulate key questions at the core of eleven biological disciplines—from Evolution, Development, Paleontology, and Neurobiology to Cellular and Molecular Biology, Quantitative Genetics, Human Diseases, Ecology, Agriculture and Science… 
How a growing organismal perspective is adding new depth to integrative studies of morphological evolution
TLDR
To understand the dynamic nature of morphological evolution, investigators need to give more explicit attention to the processes that generate evolutionarily relevant variation at the population level and the need for Evo‐devo to adopt a high‐resolution phylogenetic approach is proposed.
The future of Evo‐Devo: the inaugural meeting of the Pan American Society for evolutionary developmental biology
TLDR
The excitement and discussion generated over the course of the meeting demonstrates the current dynamism of the field, suggesting that the future of Evo‐Devo is bright indeed.
Evolutionary Developmental Biology (Evo-Devo) Research in Latin America.
TLDR
Here, the first comprehensive overview of the Evo-Devo laboratories based in Latin America is provided and current lines of research based on endemic species are described, focusing on body plans and patterning, systematics, physiology, computational modeling approaches, ecology, and domestication.
Adaptive Radiations: Insights From Evo-Devo
Phenotypic Plasticity: From Theory and Genetics to Current and Future Challenges
TLDR
This contribution is intended as a fresh view and will discuss current and future challenges of plasticity research, and the need to identify associated molecular mechanisms, resulting in a four-step model that will reveal plasticity as a major factor of evolution.
Integrating "Evo" and "Devo": The Limb as Model Structure.
  • Nathan M Young
  • Biology, Psychology
    Integrative and comparative biology
  • 2017
TLDR
These studies show how insights from both evolutionary and developmental biology of the limb may be used to generate novel testable hypotheses into the origins of diversity that are broadly applicable to the integration of EDB.
Inaugural meeting of the Pan-American Society for Evolutionary Developmental Biology report: the importance of diversity in a multidisciplinary field
We analyze the interdisciplinary state of evolutionary developmental biology based on the diversity of themes, taxa, levels of organization and scientists at the first meeting of the Pan-American
Rethinking Causation in Cancer with Evolutionary Developmental Biology
TLDR
This work uses the concepts of modularity and evolvability to show how an EvoDevo perspective can be manifested in cancer translational research, better suited for integrating the complexity of current empirical results and can facilitate novel developments in the investigation and clinical treatment of cancer.
How Do Gene Networks Promote Morphological Evolution
  • A. Sadier
  • Biology
    Old Questions and Young Approaches to Animal Evolution
  • 2019
TLDR
Current knowledge about how the evolution of GRNs can generate variation is reviewed to help understand how species evolve and get their shape and how defects in the developmental program could lead to morphological defects in humans.
A way forward with eco evo devo: an extended theory of resource polymorphism with postglacial fishes as model systems
TLDR
It is argued that an integrated view, which merges ecology, evolution and developmental biology (eco evo devo) on an equal footing, is needed to understand the multifaceted role of the environment in simultaneously determining the development of the phenotype and the nature of the selective environment, and how organisms in turn affect the environment through eco evo and eco devo feedbacks.

Charles Darwin and the Origins of Plant Evolutionary Developmental Biology
TLDR
This work traces the origin of comparative plant developmental morphology from its inception in the eighteenth century works of Wolff and Goethe, through the mid nineteenth century discoveries of the general principles of leaf and floral organ morphogenesis, and shows that the first person to carefully read and internalize the remarkable advances in the understanding of plant morphogenesis in the 1840s and 1850s is Charles Darwin.

Conserved developmental processes and the formation of evolutionary novelties: examples from butterfly wings
TLDR
It is discussed how eyespot mutants with disturbed embryonic development may help elucidate the genetic pathways involved in eyespot formation, and how venation mutants with altered eyespot patterns might shed light on mechanisms of eyespot development.

TLDR
The main finding of this paper is that Strepsiptera are closely related to the Coleoptera rather than Diptera, as recently claimed.
Evolution and development : report of the Dahlem Workshop on Evolution and development, Berlin 1981, May 10-15
TLDR
This work has shown that changes in Developmental Timing As a Mechanism of Macroevolution as well as Genomic Alterations in Evolutionary Processes are driven by changes in Regulatory Organization.
Developmental system drift and flexibility in evolutionary trajectories
TLDR
Current data on the population genetics and molecular mechanisms of DSD illustrate how the details of developmental processes are constantly changing within evolutionary lineages, indicating that developmental systems may possess a great deal of plasticity in their responses to natural selection.
