Ecological Developmental Biology: The Environmental Regulation of Development, Health, and Evolution, Second Edition, by Scott F. Gilbert and David Epel.
The only book that, in one place:
- details the three main epigenetic sources of phenotype: symbionts, altered chromatin structure, and plasticity.
- discusses the various ways that development can be disrupted: teratogens, endocrine disruptors, global climate change, and mismatches between diet and environment.
- documents the evidence for an extended evolutionary synthesis involving the modern synthesis, evo-devo, and eco-evo-devo.
