About this book series

The book series Diversity and Commonality in Animals publishes refereed volumes on all aspects of zoology, with a special focus on both common and unique features of biological systems for better understanding of animal biology. Originating from a common ancestor, animals share universal mechanisms, but during the process of evolution, a large variety of animals have acquired their unique morphologies and functions to adapt to the environment in the struggle for existence. Topics covered include taxonomy, behavior, developmental biology, endocrinology, neuroscience, and evolution. The series is an official publication of The Zoological Society of Japan.
