Neoteny is the retention of the juvenile features in an adult animal. Genetic factors influence the degree of neoteny in individuals. Neoteny is manifested both behaviorally and physically. In the forward to “The Wild Canids” (Fox, ), Conrad Lorenz adds a few of his observations on neoteny and the problems of domestication:The problems of domestication have been an obsession with me. In this, the first major book on the subject in fifty years, Stephen Jay Gould documents the history of the idea of recapitulation from its first appearance among the pre-Socratics to its fall in the early twentieth century. Mr. Gould explores recapitulation as an idea that .

-M. L. McKinney () One of the joys of working in a renascent field is that it is actually possible to keep up with the literature. So it is with mixed emotions that we heterochronists (even larval forms like myself) view the recent "veritable explosion of interest in heterochrony" (in Gould's words in this volume).   Heterochrony and Macroevolution. Heterochrony has long been invoked as an important agent in macroevolution (McKinney and McNamara ).Jablonski () provided an excellent overview of the role of heterochrony in macroevolution. Hanken and Wake () reviewed the role of miniaturization in macroevolution. Specific examples of heterochrony in producing major evolutionary Cited by:

Heterochrony has been a dominant theme in the explosion of interest of evolution and development. This book explores beyond heterochrony for the links between evolutionary and developmental processes, as well as the origins of morphological diversity.

Second, there has been a recent interest in heterotopy, the study of evolutionary changes in spatial patterning. Heterotopy offers an interesting and important alterna-tive to heterochrony, but has barely been considered in. Heterochrony can be divided into intraspecific and interspecific types.
