Dedicated to Alessandro Minelli, distinguished zoologist and evolutionary biologist, this essay collection spans a wide range of approaches to the study of development and evolution, especially, but not exclusively, at their fertile interface, evolutionary developmental biology (or, evo-devo). Discussed topics include the analysis of the development and evolution of specific features in plants and animals, phylogenetic inference, historical and philosophical revision of key aspects of the disciplines, theoretical elaborations on fundamental notions, and conceptual modelling of developmental and evolutionary dynamics. While being mainly aimed at professional researchers in the field, the book could also provide material for discussion groups in undergraduate and graduate university courses.
