'... stimulating food for thought ...' The Quarterly Review of Biology
"Readers will be well rewarded by the nice representation of both sides of each controversial topic and the fresh perspective on biological complexity, especially those interested in an evolutionary perspective of development. Highly recommended." J.E. Platz, Creighton University for Choice Magazine
"I found Modular Evolution to be interesting and informative... This book encourages us to continue to evaluate what we consider a "major transition" with an eye towards understanding the important development and evolutionary mechanisms that have led to complex and diverse phenotypes." Tami Cruickshank, Evolution & Development
"Each chapter introduction artfully sets the stage, biologically and historically, with the subject discussed in a flowing, chronological fashion. The conclusions generally summarize the material and introduce the reader to the next chapter. Modular Evolution is a fascinating book that dives into current topics in evolutionary biology while offering an intriguing framework for understanding biological complexity." Anit Raja Banerjee, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
"The central five chapters of the book offer concise introductions into several key debates in evolutionary biology linked to different levels of biological organization and offer stimulating food for thought even for those readers who are not convinced by the author's general perspective." Gerhard Schlosser, Quarterly Review of Biology
