article description
The aim of this study is to investigate the integrative nature of evolutionary developmental biology (evodevo). We particularly analyzed the temporal characteristics of the processes studied by different research programs of evo-devo and we compared them with those of macroevolution, microevolution and developmental processes of organisms. We found that in the major research programs of evo-devo, macroevolutionary phenomena characteristics are mainly recovered (assuming some continuity between such phenomena and molecular-genetic and organismic changes), while in the sub-area of eco-evo-devo (ecological evolutionary developmental biology) microevolutionary characteristics are mainly recovered.
