Leo Buss

Résumé
Leo W. Buss (born 1953) is a retired Professor at Yale University's departments of geology, geophysics, and ecology and evolutionary biology. He graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D in 1979. His evolutionary developmental biology book approaches the subject of the evolution of metazoan development from a cell lineage selection point of view. He reevaluates August Weismann's model of the cell compartmentalization of somatic and germline cell lineages (see Weismann barrier), and argues that the vision of the individual taken by the modern synthesis is insufficient to explain the early evolution of development or ontogeny. He collaborated with Walter Fontana in producing some of the first papers on artificial chemistries.
