Ecological Developmental Biology

The Environmental Regulation of Development, Health, and Evolution

Second Edition

Scott F. Gilbert and David Epel

Sinauer Associates is an imprint of Oxford University Press

The only book that, in one place:

- details the three main epigenetic sources of phenotype: symbionts, altered chromatin structure, and plasticity.

- discusses the various ways that development can be disrupted: teratogens, endocrine disruptors, global climate change, and mismatches between diet and environment.

- documents the evidence for an extended evolutionary synthesis involving the modern synthesis, evo-devo, and eco-evo-devo.
