520    The study of animal development has deep historical roots 
       in codifying the field of evolutionary biology. In the 
       1940s evolutionary theory became engulfed by analyses of 
       microevolutionary genetics and development became focused 
       on mechanisms, forsaking the evolutionary implications of 
       ontogeny. Recently, ontogeny has resurfaced as a 
       significant component of evolutionary change and also of 
       population and community dynamics. Ontogeny, Functional 
       Ecology and Evolution of Bats is a reference work by bat 
       biologists who emphasize the importance of understanding 
       ontogeny in analyses of evolution and ecology. In addition,
       the developmental underpinnings of specialized morphology,
       physiology and behaviour are elucidated, and the strong 
       influence of ecology on the ontological niche of juvenile 
       bats is illustrated. This book is an essential reference, 
       not only for bat biologists, but for anyone working in the
       fields of ecology, developmental biology, evolution, 
       behaviour and systematics
