Homoplasy: the recurrence of similarity in evolution. Responsibility: [edited by] Michael J. Sanderson, Larry Hufford. Imprint: San Diego, Calif.: Academic Press . Why do unrelated organisms sometimes appear almost identical in details of the anatomy, behavior, physiology, and ecology? Homoplasy assembles leaders in. The authors of this book investigate one of the most fascinating and, for many decades, most intractable of evolutionary conundrums-why do unrelated.

In contrast, homoplasy is the shared similarities between organisms that is not the result of shared evolutionary history.
This innovative book is certain to provoke discussion of homoplasy compelling evidence for particular theories of evolutionary change The first book on this increasingly interesting subject Includes authoritative treatments from leading experts expressing a variety of viewpoints. More recently, however, studies of homoplasy are recognized as new opportunities for the exploration of biodiversity.
