Abstract

Review of:

What's new: the source and uses of homology Review of G.P. Wagner: Homology, Genes, and Evolutionary Innovation; Princeton University Press, 2014

The concept of homology has a long history and a long bibliography, to which Günter Wagner's book Homology, genes, and evolutionary innovation (Princeton University Press, 2014) represents a significant addition. The volume is an intellectual analog of the morphological innovations it describes: firmly rooted in the past, yet expanding into new intellectual territory, just as a morphological novelty presents new evolutionary possibilities
