Book Cover
Handbook of Developmental Science, Behavior, and Genetics

The Handbook of Developmental Science, Behavior, and Genetics brings together the cutting-edge theory, research and methodology that contribute to our current scientific understanding of the role of genetics in the developmental system.

This essential reference work commemorates the historically important and profound contributions made by Gilbert Gottlieb in comparative psychology and developmental science. Spanning more than four decades, Gottlieb's career was dedicated to bringing rigorous experimental evidence to bear on our understanding of how the dynamics of organism and context relations contribute to development. Along with other colleagues, Gottlieb's work was the major scientific basis for rejecting the reductionism and counterfactual approach to understanding the links between genes, behavior, and development.

Gilbert Gottlieb was preparing this handbook at the time of his death, but with the permission and support of the Gottlieb Family, the editors have been able to complete the project. The resulting handbook is a watershed reference which documents the current status of comparative psychology and developmental science and provides the foundation from which future scientific progress will derive.
