How did evolution produce specific characteristics, such as the feet of amphibians, or the eye and brain that allow us to read these words? Museum curator Kenneth McNamara delves into the fascinating field of heterochrony to show the errant results when a normal pattern of embryological development is gently nudged off-course. 60 illustrations.
