Thanks to the authors’ complementary expertise, this book integrates the findings of several academic fields into a coherent and novel perspective on evolution. Lala has a background in evolutionary and behavioral biology, cultural evolution and niche construction, Uller in evolutionary ecology, Feiner in evo-devo and molecular evolution, Feldman in evolutionary genetics and cultural evolution, and Gilbert in developmental biology and eco-evo-devo. The authors all share an interest in the philosophy and history of biology.
