ENDLESS FORMS MOST BEAUTIFUL The New Science of Evo Devo and the Making of the Animal Kingdom

by | Read by Arthur Morey

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

It turns out that your genome is less like a blueprint and more like a kitchen, complete with drawers full of toothpicks and rubber bands and multipurpose items like olive oil and marshmallows. Author Sean Carroll focuses on the "tool box genes" and genetic switches that transform the ingredients in our genomes into the creatures we are. This engaging inquiry addresses the intersection of embryonic development, genetics, and paleontology to introduce the new science of evolutionary development, or "evo-devo." Arthur Morey provides a clear, well-paced performance throughout. His mastery of technical terms is impressive. Still, the material is slow going. If you want to learn the vocabulary of the new science, carry a pad of paper to write down important terms. F.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
