Research and Markets: Epigenetic Principles of Evolution

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new report "Epigenetic Principles of Evolution" to their offering.

This is the first and only book, so far, to deal with the causal basis of evolution from an epigenetic view. By revealing the epigenetic "user" of the "genetic toolkit", this book demonstrates the primacy of epigenetic mechanisms and epigenetic information in generating evolutionary novelties.

The author convincingly supports his theory with a host of examples from the most varied fields of biology, by emphasizing changes in developmental pathways as the basic source of evolutionary change in metazoans.

- Original and thought-provoking - a radically new theory that overcomes the present difficulties of the theory of evolution.

- Is the first and only theory that uses epigenetic mechanisms and principles for explaining evolution of metazoans

- Takes an integrative approach and shows a wide range of learning

Key Topics Covered:

Part 1: Epigenetic Basis of Metazoan Heredity

Part 2: Neural-Developmental Premises of Evolutionary Adaptation

Part 3: Epigenetics of Circumevolutionary Phenomena and the Mechansim of the Evolutionary Change

Part 4: Epigenetics of Metazoan Evolution
