    This chapter reviews the different meanings of the term and provides a detailed consideration of the application of a pathways perspective in developmental psychopathology. It commences with a review of the possible features implied by the terms path and pathway and their translation into the understanding of development and psychopathology. In evolutionary biology, abiogenesis, or informally the origin of life (OoL), is the natural process by which life has arisen from non-living matter, such as simple organic compounds. While the details of this process are still unknown, the prevailing scientific hypothesis is that the transition from non-living to living entities was not a single event, but an evolutionary process of.

    Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa about , years ago. We are now the only living members of what many zoologists refer to as the human tribe, Hominini, but there is . ROOTS AND RBRSs. Roots and RBRSs are preserved as fossils in a variety of sedimentary contexts of varying quality (Retallack, ).The best and most complete earliest evidence comes from the Rhynie Chert (including the nearby Windyfield Chert), which is a million-year-old site in Scotland that captures a period when plant life on land was at an early stage of development (Trewin and Rice.

    Evolution, theory in biology postulating that the various types of plants, animals, and other living things on Earth have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations. The theory of evolution is one of the fundamental keystones of modern biological theory.. The diversity of the living world is staggering. Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the study of the relationship between evolution and development. Dealing specifically with the generative mechanisms of organismal form, evo-devo goes straight to the core of the developmental origin of variation, the raw material on which natural selection (and random drift) can work.

The book's organizing concept is that of the genetic pathway, the sequence of requisite genetic and molecular activities that underlie a developmental process. From this perspective, the author explores the nature of the genetic, molecular, and selectional events that alter these pathways, yielding developmental change.

The first five chapters deal with the history of the field, the data it employs, and basic ideas that inform current research. The next three chapters are devoted to case studies in developmental evolution, starting with examples of currently favored model systems (e.g., Drosophila melanogaster) and building outward.

Buss examines the personality traits we share with other animals and the traits that set us apart and make us distinctly explains that within those general traits there is much variability, and those traits become distinct during the crucial periods of human development/5(3).Evolutionary developmental biology (informally, evo-devo) is a field of biological research that compares the developmental processes of different organisms to infer the ancestral relationships between them and how developmental processes evolved.

The field grew from 19th-century beginnings, where embryology faced a mystery: zoologists did not know how embryonic development was controlled at.
