About this book Developmental Instability: Its Origins and Evolutionary Implications is a collection of papers and transcribed discussions from a . The field of developmental instability has generated a large amount of controversy recently, mostly because of fierce disagreement over the genetic basis of fluctuating asymmetry and its role in mate selection. This book is a timely and innovative synthesis of the discussion. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xxiii, pages: illustrations ; 26 cm: Contents: Part I.

The book claims the phenomenon has only arisen in the past few decades in the United States in response to social and economic changes, and it urges continuing scholarship examining the nature of life and paths of development for emerging adults. Five features of emerging adults. As Arnett describes it, emerging adulthood can be defined as an:Author: Munsey, Christopher. A change in residence may lead to a change in schools or child care providers, which may also vary. as a result of changes in parental employment or income. The domains of instability are depicted as. overlapping circles that form an outer ring around the .

Developmental Instability: Its Origins and Evolutionary Implications is a collection of papers and transcribed discussions from a conference held in Tempe, Arizona in June The papers represent a wide range of contributions, from the empirical to the theoretical, and include methods for measuring developmental instability across a variety of taxa and traits.

Buy Asymmetry, Developmental Stability and Evolution (): NHBS - Anders Pape Möller and John P Swaddle, Oxford University Press. Why does nature love symmetry? In Asymmetry, Developmental Stability and Evolution, M--oslash--;ller and Swaddle analyse the evolutionary implications of symmetry. They advance and explain their theory that asymmetry is related to genetic stability and fitness, and that symmetric individuals appear to have quantifiable and significant advantages over their asymmetric .
