Developmental biology

E. H. Davidson, Genomic Regulatory Systems: Development and Evolution (Academic Press, San Diego, CA, 2001).

Description An important work based on a lifetime of solid research in developmental biology. The book is unique because it attempts to give a semi formal theory of regulatory networks as the basis of developmental biology.

Importance: Impact

E. Werner, In silico multicellular systems biology and minimal genomes (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=14678738&query_hl=3), Drug Discovery Today, Volume 8, Issue 24, 15 December 2003, Pages 1121-1127

Description This article presents a new paradigm for understanding multicellular development of organisms. It combines in vivo methods with in silico methods using minimal genomes for multicellular systems. While the article is futuristic, its vision may well dominate future research. It is the next step based on research on minimal genomes for single cell organisms.

Importance: Impact

Disease

Ecology

Walden

Description: This book is based on the author two years of living near lake Walden. Thoreau summaries in the book his observations and offers information about the history of nature investigation. Thoreau offers a unique attitude to nature preservation.

Importance: Impact

Ethology

Entomology

Evolutionary biology

Histoire Naturelle

Description: Until the publication of this encyclopedia the scientific community thought that all animals were created together by God before about 6,000 years. Not only that this 44 volume encyclopedia contained all biological knowledge of its time, it offered different theory. 100 years before Darwin, Buffon claimed that man and ape might have a common ancestor. His work also had significant impact on ecology.

Importance: Topic creator, Breakthrough, Impact

On The Tendency of Varieties to Depart Indefinitely from the Original Type

Description: This publication suggested natural selection as the cause of evolution. Wallace was afraid to publish his work due to the church but he sent it to Charles Darwin and help him develop what is somewhat mistakenly called today Darwinism.

Importance: Topic creator, Breakthrough, Impact

The Origin of Species

Description: The Origin of Species is one of the hallmark works of biology. In it, Darwin details his theory that organisms gradually evolve through natural selection. It was first published on November 24, 1859 and immediately sold out its initial print run. Darwin presents a theory of evolution that is in most aspects identical to the theories now accepted by scientists. He carefully argues out this theory of evolution of species by natural selection by presenting all the accumulated scientific evidence from his voyage on the HMS Beagle in the 1830s.

Importance: Topic creator, Breakthrough, Impact

The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection

Description: This book discusses Fisher's fundamental theorem of natural selection

Importance: Impact

Evolutionary developmental biology

The Evolution of Individuality

  • Leo W. Buss
  • 1987, The Evolution of Individuality, Princeton University Press.

Description: In his book that examines the cell lineage as a unit of selection, Leo Buss addresses the evolutionary conflict between the individuality of cells that make up a metazoan and the metazoan individual itself. In elaborating this idea he presents numerous hypotheses regarding the evolution of animal development and life cycles. He wraps it up by addressing hierarchical organization in biology. It is one of the first texts addressing the idea of the individual in biology, integrating multilevel selection theory (from the macroevolutionists and gene selectionists) with developmental and cell biology. Though heavy on the theory and rather light on the evidence, for anyone interested in evo-devo or macroevolution this should be an essential read.

Importance: Topic creator.

Freshwater biology

Genetics

Experiments on Plant Hybridization

Description: Experiments on Plant Hybridization was the result after years spent studying genetic traits in pea plants. In his paper, Mendel compared seven discrete traits. Through experimentation, Mendel discovered that one inheritable trait would invariably be dominant to its recessive alternative. This model, later known as Mendelian inheritance or Mendelian genetics, provided an alternative to blending inheritance, which was the prevailing theory at the time.

Importance: Topic creator, Breakthrough, Impact

Importance: Topic creator, Impact

Naturalis Historia

Description: Encyclopedia of nature. It included many areas that are not considered to be part of nature sciences today - from geography, botany, zoology to painting. The encyclopedia was also novel with respect to its structure. It was to first book to use references, table of contents and tables of animals characteristics.
