Cambridge Studies in Morphology and Molecules: New Paradigms in Evolutionary Bio Evolution of the Rodents: Series Number 5 : Volume 5 Hardback

Edited by Philip G. (University of York) Cox, Lionel (Universite de Montpellier II) Hautier

Description

The widespread use of mouse models in developmental, behavioural and genetic studies has sparked wider interest in rodent biology as a whole.

This book brings together the latest research on rodents to better understand the evolution of both living and extinct members of this fascinating group.

Topics analysed include the role of molecular techniques in the determination of robust phylogenetic frameworks; how geometric morphometric methods help quantify and analyse variation in shape; and the role of developmental biology in elucidating the origins of skeletal elements and the teeth.

The editors unite these disciplines to present the current state of knowledge in rodent biology, whilst setting the landscape for future research.

This book highlights interdisciplinary links across palaeontology, developmental biology, functional morphology, phylogenetics and biomechanics, making it a valuable resource for evolutionary biologists in all fields.
