    Animal Developmental Ecology is the first book to focus specifically on the interactions between the environment and developmental mechanisms with particular emphasis given to the consequences for animal populations. The underlying premise of the book is that the study of physiological mechanisms alongside the analysis of adaptive values will enable rapid advances in our knowledge of this important field. With contributors from well-known experts, the book will be invaluable for all postgraduates and researchers in this area.
