From a Neodarwinian point of view, the book integrates evolutionary processes at all levels to explain the diversity of animal life. It examines a wide range of topics including genetics, speciation, development, evolution, constructional and functional aspects of form, fossil lineages, and systematics, and -in a major new chapter-takes a hard look at the Cambrian explosion.

With an extensive bibliography and far-ranging discussion of topics, this book is a good reference source for anyone concerned with the evolutionary record.

An engaging area of biology for more than a century, the study of macroevolution continues to offer profound insight into our understanding of the tempo of evolution and of the evolution of biological diversity. What regulates biological diversity and its historical development? Can it be explained by natural selection alone? Has geologic history regulated the tempo of diversification?

^IGenetics, Paleontology, and Macroevolution ^R describes the patterns and processes that lead to evolutionary changes of large magnitude. It outlines a strategy for the study of large-scale evolutionary processes and summarizes critically the work that has been done. The author integrates all evolutionary processes, from those on the molecular level to large-scale historical approaches taken by paleontologists, and relates systematics, developmental biology, population genetics, and paleontology.^LUnlike any other book on the subject of evolution, this treatise argues many points that form the basis of lively and unresolved discussions. Primarily intended for a graduate level course, this book will stimulate the thoughts of everyone interested in evolutionary biology and paleontology.
