Om forfatteren

Wallace Arthur was one of the founders of the interdisciplinary field of evo-devo (evolutionary developmental biology) in the 1980s. He was a founding editor of the journal Evolution and Development. His interests are focused on the evolutionary origins of novel types of animal, and how these origins may differ from 'routine evolution'.
