Important contributions to this effort came from Dr. Charles Welsh (Duquesne University), who provided his knowledge and experience to this important section. We have also moved the examples and insights from the chapter devoted to the evolution of development to place them into the appropriate context throughout the book. This emphasizes the importance of evolution and development by continually providing examples rather than gathering them together in a single chapter"--
