From the Back Cover:

"Homology is the central concept for all biology. This fine book brings together a selection of outstanding comparative biologists, all of whom have struggled to formulate a philosophical foundation for homology that has sufficient generality that it can serve all of biology."
--David B. Blake in SCIENCE, 1995
"...a fine edited collection of papers about the concept of homology..."
--Kenneth M. Weiss in EVOLUTIONARY ANTHROPOLOGY, 1995
Homology, the similarity between organisms that is due to common ancestry, is the central concept of all comparative biology. However, the application of this concept varies depending on the data being examined. This volume represents a state-of-the-art treatment of the different applications of this unifying concept. Chapters deal with homology on all levels, from molecules to behavior, and are authored by leading contributors to systematics, natural history, and evolutionary, developmental, and comparative biology. Special features include:
* Commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Sir Richard Owen's seminal paper distinguishing homology from analogy
* Contributors who are renowned leaders in comparative biology
* Coverage that is both comprehensive and interdisciplinary
