A new voice in the nature-nurture debate can be heard at the interface between evolution and development. Phenotypic integration--or, how large numbers of characteristics are related to make up the whole organism, and how these relationships evolve and change their function--is a major growth area in research, attracting the attention of evolutionary biologists, developmental biologists, and 4/5(1). Evolution & Development serves as a voice for the rapidly growing research community at the interface of evolutionary and developmental biology. The exciting re-integration of these two fields, after almost a century's separation, holds much promise as the focus of a broader synthesis of biological thought. Evolution and development seem to differ mostly in span, since evolution takes some millions of years and development only some decades. But in addition to order of magnitude, there is also the conceptual issue raised by Dawkins. Evolution is change over a series of organisms, while development is change within a single organism.5/5.
