Evolution, the Logic of Biology by John S. Torday,Virender K. Rehan

By John S. Torday,Virender K. Rehan

By targeting the mobile mechanisms that underlie ontogeny, phylogeny and regeneration of advanced physiologic qualities, Evolution, the common sense of Biology demonstrates using homeostasis, the basic precept of body structure and medication, because the unifying mechanism for evolution as all of biology. The homeostasis precept can be utilized to appreciate how environmental stressors have affected physiologic mechanisms to generate condition-specific novelty via mobile mechanisms.

Evolution, the common sense of Biology permits the reader to appreciate the vertebrate life-cycle as an intergenerational continuum in help of potent, on-going environmental version. by way of knowing the rules of body structure from their primary unicellular origins, culminating in modern day metazoans, the reader as scholar, researcher or practitioner can be inspired to imagine by way of the prevention of sickness, instead of within the remedy of disorder because the eradication of symptoms.

by means of tracing the ontogeny and phylogeny of this and different phenotypic homologies, one could understand and know how advanced physiologic qualities have mechanistically advanced from their easier ancestral and developmental origins as mobile constructions and capabilities, offering a good judgment of biology for the 1st time.

Evolution, the common sense of Biology will be a useful source for graduate scholars and researchers learning evolutionary improvement, drugs and biology, anthropology, comparative and developmental biology, genetics and genomics, and physiology.
