Homoplasy: the recurrence of similarity in evolution. Responsibility: [edited by] Michael J. Sanderson, Larry Hufford. Imprint: San Diego, Calif.: Academic Press . Why do unrelated organisms sometimes appear almost identical in details of the anatomy, behavior, physiology, and ecology? Homoplasy assembles leaders in. The authors of this book investigate one of the most fascinating and, for many decades, most intractable of evolutionary conundrums-why do unrelated.
