Wallace Arthur (born March 30, 1952) is an evolutionary biologist and science writer. Biased Embryos and Evolution: 2004, Cambridge University Press. He is Emeritus Professor of Zoology at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Of his eleven books, the most recent is Life through Time and Space, published by Harvard University Press in 2017. He has held visiting positions at Harvard University, Darwin College Cambridge, and the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland.

Lets see, The author wants to say that the constraints on how an embryo can be grown will affect what possible phenotypes are actualised. Well that seems plausible enough, I would be interesting in finding out more about HOW to actually grow an embryo? why cant you grow a wheel and axle? But the author doesn't know, too bad. All he can do is talk about how English he is and how great is its to be English and that development must have somthing to do with evolution, Oh and by they way the author is English.

Biased Embryos and Evolution book. Aimed primarily at a general readership and college students.

Professor Wallace Arthur is not. He takes the controversial view that biases in the ways that embryos can be altered are just as important as natural selection in determining the directions that evolution has taken, including the one that led to the origin of humans

Professor Wallace Arthur is not. He takes the controversial view that biases in the ways that embryos can be altered are just as important as natural selection in determining the directions that evolution has taken, including the one that led to the origin of humans. This argument forms the core of the book. However, in addition, the book summarizes other important issues relating to how embryonic (and post-embryonic) development evolves

This book uses a dissection of the randomness doctrine to re-think the role of variation in evolution, providing (1) a fresh and useful explanation of how mutation works, and why it is not "random" in any precise sense, (2) how there are different domains of population genetics, only some of which correspond to the neo-Darwinian verbal theories of causation used b. The possibilities of numeric description of the megaspheric embryo with two chambers being of primordial significance in stratigraphic evaluation of orbitoid large foraminifers are discussed.

Aimed primarily at a general readership and college students of biology, this book focuses on the question of how embryonic development changes in the course of evolution, thus giving rise to new types of creatures. It takes the view that biases in the ways that embryos can be altered are as important as natural selection in determining the directions that evolution has taken, including the one that led to the origin of humans.

I just felt I needed to counteract that one other review currently posted.

This book is very easy to read, and the author takes great pains to make it very accessible to a wide range of audiences. He eschews jargon, and gives credit where credit is due (this in contrast, for example, to Sean Carroll's popular books on the subject which often are almost entirely devoid of references). He reduces complex subjects to a core of important concepts that he communicates playfully and succinctly. I tip my hat to him.

The key insight of the book is that "developmental constraints" is too negative a terminology, and "developmental bias" should be used instead. This is completely right on, in my opinion, and I hope the scientific community adopts his suggestion here.

My complaint is that he never really drives home the point about *why* development is biased. To do this, one needs to go into the details of biochemistry and molecular biology at a level to which that this book does not venture.

Nevertheless, the thoughts in this book are best understood as a set of guiding principles as we move forward, and as such, I recommend it to the EvoDevo researcher and the interested layman alike.
