current learn in ecophysiology, practical morphology, and behavioural ecology. every one element is illustrated with the special result of empirical paintings on as broad a variety of organisms as attainable. The built-in tale of the versatile phenotype is woven through the booklet at the foundation of the authors'
long-term learn on migrant shorebirds and their invertebrate prey. those birds trip monstrous distances from one setting to a different, and the altering nature in their our bodies displays the numerous choice pressures skilled during their globe-spanning migrations. In essence, the authors argue for the lifestyles of direct, measurable, hyperlinks among phenotype and ecology, mediated by means of developmental methods. Their ebook outlines a extra encompassing method of evolutionary ecology,
based on first rules in body structure, behaviour, and ecology. It aspires to motivate an additional integration of ecology and body structure, in addition to fostering a collaborative examine schedule among ecologists, physiologists, and developmental biologists.
